PaceBlade EasyBook P8N stealth-slate UMPC

Bjorn over at (who incidentally has very cool glasses) has pulled some strings and found himself one of PaceBlade's EasyBook P8N UMPCs.  His opinion?  It's a snappy little fellow with a deeply tactile matte black rubberised casing that I'm imagining feels a little like Motorola's PEBL. It's based on the VIA C7-M processor and also has a decent consumer-grade IR port so you can use the P8N as a universal remote.  At first I wasn't too keen on the design, with the buttons at the bottom rather than either side as most other UMPCs have had, but the combination of the matte casing and the slimness makes this a stealth-slate I could grow to love.  Send me one, please, PaceBlade!Another image of the device, together with the full specs after the cut...
