PsiXpda UMPC 3G-capable ultraportable arrives in UK

We've grown familiar with getting drawn in by an alluring piece of ultramobile computing hardware and then realising it's unlikely to make it outside of Taipei, so it's almost a surprise to be writing about a new British UMPC company.  PsiXpda's eponymous UMPC packs a sliding, tilting 4.8-inch 800 x 480 resistive touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, Atom Z510 1.1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM, and runs Windows XP.

Shenzhen HT560 MID packs VIA C7 CPU

Shenzhen HT560 MID packs VIA C7 CPU

Given how popular Android has tuned out to be among no-name tablet manufacturers, it's almost a surprise to see a new Windows XP slate.  Still, the Shenzhen Seed Industrial Co. HT560 has a few tricks up its sleeve: behind the 5.6-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen lurks VIA's 1GHz C7 processor rather than the Intel Atom we've come to expect, paired with 1GB of memory and between 8GB and 32GB of SSD storage.

ViewSonic N01 3G MID spotted

ViewSonic N01 3G MID spotted

ViewSonic's deluge of new products back in July failed to include a MID or UMPC style device, but it seems they were merely waiting for the holidays to arrive in order to roll out just such a model.  The ViewSonic N01 is a reasonably striking MID with a 1.1GHz Intel Atom Z510 processor, 1GB of RAM and a scant 10GB of onboard storage; it also has integrated 3G connectivity along with a TV tuner and Windows XP.

K.R.T. X9 joins list of multitouch tablets we can’t buy

K.R.T. X9 joins list of multitouch tablets we can’t buy

Somebody needs to rent a boat, sail to China and pick up a hold-full of unknown touchscreen tablets; it's getting more than a little frustrating seeing what's on offer over there, and having so little choice in the US and Europe.  Latest to tickle our collective fancy is the K.R.T. X9 from Shenzhen K.R.T. Technology, a 10-inch multitouch slate running Windows 7 on an Intel Atom N270 processor.  The X9 packs WCDMA, TD-SCDMA and CDMA2000 3G, pretty much covering all the bases, together with WiFi a/b/g.

Camangi WebStation seemingly imminent; new Android app market launched

Camangi WebStation seemingly imminent; new Android app market launched

Blimey, could Camangi actually be serious about selling their WebStation Android tablet?  We've scoffed a little at the hitherto-unknown company's intentions of having the 7-inch WiFi tablet on the market by December 2009, but a new site and a freshly launched Camangi Market (for apps friendly to the slate's hardware and screen resolution) seem to suggest that the joke's on us.  For once, we're happy to be in the wrong as if the pricing is right, the WebStation could prove highly appealing.

Camangi WebStation Android UMPC on sale “no later than early December”

Camangi WebStation Android UMPC on sale “no later than early December”

We made no attempt to disguise our confusion about what looked like a poorly orchestrated teaser campaign for the Camangi WebStation Android slate earlier this year, but neither did we deny that there's still a space in our heart (and on our shelves) for the first affordable example of just such a device.  Camangi's site - now fully functional and accepting pre-launch reservations - is claiming that the 7-inch WebStation will drop "no later than early December this year".

Sony UX490 UMPC hugely modded: CPU switched, 3G injected, quad-OS

Sony UX490 UMPC hugely modded: CPU switched, 3G injected, quad-OS

We've covered a few modded Sony VAIO UX-series UMPCs over the years, but it's rare to see all the headline tweaks combined into one machine.  Happily one member of the Micro PC Talk forums has done just that, taking a humble 2007 UX490 and not only switching out its SSD, WiFi and other basic components, but completely replacing the standard CPU (which is soldered into place) for a faster version.

Archos 9 PC Tablet delayed: preorders ship December, retail release in 2010

Archos 9 PC Tablet delayed: preorders ship December, retail release in 2010

Remember Archos' triumphant announcement last month that the Archos 9 PC Tablet was finally arriving on store shelves?  Well, that joy looks to have been seriously premature; while the Archos 9 may have gone up for order on October 22nd - priced at £449.99 ($748) or thereabouts - it's not expected to ship for another few weeks at least.  UMPC Portal spoke to Archos themselves, who revealed that Archos 9 pre-orders won't actually ship until early December.  It's even worse news if you're waiting to pick one up at a nearby retail store.
