Kohjinsha’s ultra-portable convertible reviewed

Kohjinsha’s ultra-portable convertible reviewed

More than just the UMPC community went mad for the Kohjinsha SA1F00A ultra-portable convertible notebook we wrote about last week; it seems there are a lot of people who start uncontrollably drooling when faced with a compact and sleek little hand-held.  The news that it would be an unlikely sight outside of Korea was a blow, but for anyone who enjoys torturing themselves (or is thinking of pestering an importer) Engadget points to a PC Watch review.

Kohjinsha Tiny Convertible Tablet for the lucky Japanese

Kohjinsha Tiny Convertible Tablet for the lucky Japanese

It's no surprise really that the UMPC/sub-Tablet form factor has proved popular in the Far East - tiny laptops have been de rigeur there for years - and here's another to add to the "I wish we got that" list.  Kohjinsha is set to offer a convertible Windows XP UMPC-a-like that packs an AMD Geode LX800 processor, 512mb of RAM, a choice of 40gb or 80gb hard-drives, WiFi, Bluetooth, a full QWERTY keyboard and 7-inch screen into an 8.6x6.4x1.0 inch, 960g chassis.

Onkyo DX-Series upgrade dual-display netbook with more pixels

Onkyo DX-Series upgrade dual-display netbook with more pixels

We can't help but wonder whether Kohjinsha will be a little bit frustrated with Onkyo, who have rebranded the company's nifty dual-display netbook but actually one-up'd the original by slotting in higher resolution panels.  The Onkyo DX-Series has the same form-factor as the Kohjinsha DZ, which means a rotating pair of 10.1-inch LCD screens but the footprint of a regular netbook, only theirs uses two 1,366 x 768 panels rather than the original's 1024 x 600.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 48 2009

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and weren't too shopped out yesterday! If you still have shopping to do for Christmas, we have some seen some cool gear over the last week that might be worth a look. The Sony Ericsson Kurara has been reviewed and the verdict is that the device needs to be cheap to succeed. We reviewed the Nokia Booklet 3G this week. The final verdict was that the machine is underpowered and outperformed by first generation netbooks.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2009

After spending most of Friday curled in a ball twitching and drooling after losing power and Internet access for almost 12 hours, I am glad to be back online and in the 21st century again. Just in time to hunker down and dose myself with a nice helping of week in review for your perusal. Chris reviewed the GSM Palm Pre and found the camera wasn't as good as some of its peers but found plenty to like in the end. The webOS operating system stands apart from rival OS'. Buffalo announced the HD-HU3 USB 3.0 drive and controller that will be shipping in Japan this month. The drive isn’t even that expensive; I hope it comes to America too.

Qualcomm Kayak 3G-connected low-cost PC reference design

Qualcomm Kayak 3G-connected low-cost PC reference design

Qualcomm have announced the Kayak PC alternative, a low-cost entry level computing device that the company describes as positioned "between desktop PCs, which normally require landlines or separate accessories for connectivity, and internet-capable wireless devices".  Devices built according to the Kayak reference design would be a hybrid of 3G-enabled netbooks and stationary nettops: rather than use hardwired ADSL or cable connections, they would take advantage of high-speed cellular broadband.  Qualcomm envisage future Kayak products as using their Snapdragon platform, but initial devices will rely on the company's Mobile Station Modem MSM7xxx-series chipsets that incorporate both computing and connectivity.
