Kohjinsha PM MID vs. Sharp PC-Z1 NetWalker

Kohjinsha PM MID vs. Sharp PC-Z1 NetWalker

MIDs are, despite the extra attention Viliv's range has drawn to the segment, still very much a niche within a niche, but most of us can at least admire the hard work that goes into squeezing a full PC into a tiny little chassis.  It's with that in mind that we've been enjoying PC Watch's comparison photoset of the Kohjinsha PM MID (aka the UMID mbook M1) versus Sharp's PC-Z1 NetWalker.

Kohjinsha PM-Series MID is rebadged UMID [Video]

Kohjinsha have announced their latest MID, the PM-series, and if you've followed the scene in ultracompact PCs over the past few months then you'll be quick to recognize it as the UMID mbook M1.  Freshly rebadged and on sale in Japan for 59,800 yen ($646), the Kohjinsha PM keeps the mbook's Atom Z510 1.1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM but seemingly lacks an integrated 3G option.

Kohjinsha EX6 11.6-inch touchscreen convertible masquerades as netbook

Kohjinsha EX6 11.6-inch touchscreen convertible masquerades as netbook

Somebody nudge Kohjinsha and tell them that their latest netbook, well, isn't a netbook.  The Kohjinsha EX6 may use an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor but with its 11.6-inch display, integrated optical drive and touchscreen - not to mention the $836 starting price - it's pushing the low-power Tablet PC boundary.

Kohjinsha SK3 7-inch touchscreen netbook gets video unboxing

Kohjinsha SK3 7-inch touchscreen netbook gets video unboxing

Kohjinsha's SK3 UMPC landed quietly in Japan back in June, and since then we've heard little about the 7-inch touchscreen convertible.  Happily the team over at Conics have been able to source at least one SK3, and they've shared the video unboxing with us.  Let's just say, unless they have particularly large hands at Conics, the little Kohjinsha really is tiny.

Kohjinsha SK3 UMPC hits Japan: decent price but rubbish battery

Kohjinsha SK3 UMPC hits Japan: decent price but rubbish battery

Kohjinsha's SK3 UMPC, which we saw yesterday, has been officially launched in Japan.  The 7-inch touchscreen SK3 gets an Intel Atom 1.33GHz processor paired with 1GB of RAM and a 60GB 1.8-inch 4,200rpm hard-drive; there's also WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS.

Kohjinsha SK3 7-inch convertible touchscreen netbook

It's ironic that what a year or two would've been called a UMPC (and, frankly, ignored by most people, tech writers included) is now called a touchscreen netbook and garners far more interest.  Latest on the block is set to be the Kohjinsha SK3, an upgrade to the existing 7-inch SC3 UMPC.  Among the changes are a new battery and upgraded cameras.

Kohjinsha SX3 touchscreen netbook unboxings & review

After the SC3 impressed reviewers, now it's the turn of the Kohjinsha SX3, which was announced at the same time, to go from unboxing to test bench.  The SX3 has a bigger 8.9-inch touchscreen, Super DVD-Multi drive and dual cameras to differentiate it from the 7-inch SC3, but under the hood it's the same 1.33GHz Atom processor and 1GB of RAM.  There are already quite a few unboxing videos out there, together with a review from Wow-Pow.

Kohjinsha SC3 7-inch tablet reviewed: impressive even with Vista

Over at Pocketables, Jenn has somehow managed to score some time with Kohjinsha's super-compact SC3 convertible tablet.  The Atom-based ultraportable has a 7-inch touchscreen, 1GB of RAM (2GB in Jenn's) and a 60GB hard-drive, and only began shipping in Japan on July 11th.  There, users can take advantage of the 1Seg digital TV tuner too.

Kohjinsha SC3 & SX3 Atom-powered ultraportable Tablet PCs

Kohjinsha are no strangers to the pages of SlashGear, and given their track record of producing interesting ultraportable tablets it's little surprise that they've had a try at Atom-based ultraportables.  The SC3 and SX3 are two compact convertibles, the former with a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen and the latter with an 8.9-inch 1280 x 768 touchscreen, both using the 1.33GHz Atom Z520 CPU.  Each has 1GB of RAM and a 60GB hard-drive.
