We did a story not to long ago about VIA’s NanoBook which looked unmistakable from this notebook. Except VIA’s model didn’t have a phone built in, it was more of a clock/alarm/thermometer type of thing, other than that and the name just above the keyboard, I can’t tell the difference.
VIA is releasing its new x86 processor called Isaiah. The chip is deemed to perform twice as fast as VIA’s current processor while maintaining the same amount of power consumption.
Seemingly another mini-laptop based on VIA's NanoBook reference design - and in that way joining the Everex Cloudbook and Packard Bell EasyNote XS - Maxdata's Belinea s.book 1 differs from its low-cost cousins by having an enhanced specification, together with the enlarged price - in Germany - to match.
The NoahPad UMPC was something I reported on before I even got to CES, but they company that makes it had it here and they gave a little demo. The keyboard is at best weird, it acts as both the keyboard and the mouse and switches between the two via a toggle switch.
The WiBrain is a full function ultra mobile pc weighing in at about 1.15-pounds. There’s a 4.8-inch WSVGA touch screen display between a split keyboards. There’s a neat pop-up video camera on top of the unit.
Its on sale, in a dev kit, sort of, it comes with the motherboard, as you see it in the picture, and a copy of the gOS Linux distribution that was meant to be run on the motherboard. The best part, it’s a mere $60.
That $60 gets you a motherboard with a 1.5GHz VIA C7 CPU, and it’s a mini-ITX motherboard, which means you can stuff it in any number of places or items. The RAM and the hard drive storage are up to you, but I would recommend a large CF card for storage.
