Goodness, it’s a veritable orgy – an orgy, I tell you! – of unboxing photos today. the next under the kinky lens of the photographer (“honestly, darling, everybody does
topless unboxing photos these days”) is ASUS’ greatly anticipated R2H UMPC, certainly the poster-child of the mini-Tablet revolution and, since its announcement following Microsoft’s all-too-successful Origami teaser campaign, the subject of plentiful spec speculation.
Mobile01.com got their hands on a boxed-up retail R2H and proceeded to encourage it out of its packaging. I must confess, my language skills aren’t much cop and so I’m not having much luck with the text of the article; however, there’s plenty of detail in the pictures…
First up, unsurprisingly, is the R2H unit itself – complete with a nylon travel case. It’s still arguably the most attractive of the UMPCs commercially available now, with the etched-out buttons and squared design reminiscent of Motorola’s incredibly successful RAZR cellphone.
Not a huge amount to see on the left side – mini-usb port, stylus dock and a place to hook your lanyard/hand-strap. Towards the top left of the photo you can see the gold fingerprint reader strip, which has proved incredibly useful for bypassing traditional keyboard-bashing passwords.
Bit more going on on the right side – wired ethernet and DVI monitor port underneath a nifty flap, with USB, microphone, stereo headphones and power running left to right next to it. On the top you can see the trackpoint-nipple for mousing.
