Aware 7-inch convertible Tablet PC promised for $300

Aware 7-inch convertible Tablet PC promised for $300

There are a couple of 7-inch ultraportables rocking the convertible tablet PC form-factor - Kohjinsha's SC3 being the most recent - but it's less usual to find them in the budget aisles.  That's what Aware Electronics are promising in the shape of the A-Book : a bargain netbook with a 7-inch swivelling touchscreen display, WiFi, Bluetooth and an Aday5G 800MHz X86 processor with 512MB RAM.  All that, in fact, for just $300.

VYE S37 – too big to be a true UMPC?

VYE S37 – too big to be a true UMPC?

What do you call a grown-up UMPC?  That's the question over at jkOnTheRun, where a dishevelled Kevin Tofel has taken delivery of a VYE S37 from import specialist Dynamism.  Based on a platform by Kohjinsha - who have featured regularly on SlashGear's pages for their ultra-compact convertible Tablet PCs - the S37 is nonetheless its own beast, with upgraded specifications pushing the device into the ambiguous mid-ground between pure UMPC and ultra-portable laptop.

Unusual Notebooks on Dynamism Pre-Order

Import Gods Dynamism have put up their pre-order page for the headline-making Kohjinsha SA1 - the ultra-portable convertible tablet PC which 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 8.6×6.4×1.0 inch, 960g chassis.  Available in early December, the two models are priced at $999 for the 40gb and $1,249 for the 80gb (is it just me or is that a bloody big jump?).  An upgrade to 1gb of RAM is $199.

Flybook VMWhile I was there, I noticed the Flybook VM - a curious looking notebook with a telescopic neck that raises the 12.1-inch widescreen up to eye-level.  Available for pre-order now, with delivery expected in December, the VM range starts at $2,899 for a 1.66GHz Intel Core Duo powered machine with 30GB HD, 1GB RAM and DVD-CD-R running WinXP Pro.  It's available in silver, red, black and yellow.

Samsung’s twisty UMPC boasts Mobile WiMax

Blimey, only yesterday I was slobbering in a not-too-attractive way over the tiny Kohjinsha convertible Tablet PC, and now I've got this crazily-twisting UMPC from Samsung to promise my heart (and wallet) to.  The SPH-P9000 Deluxe MITs was announced at the Mobile WiMax Summit 2006 and sports a 1GHz Transmeta processor, a bevy of wireless standards (including Mobile WiMax, EV-DO, Bluetooth but no WiFi) that can manage up to 2-3Mbps transfer rates at speeds of up to 75mph, a 5-inch WVGA display, 30GB hard-drive and 1.3 megapixel camera, all running under Windows XP.
