Mobitia UMPC?

Okay, I personally did not know about this Ultra-Mobile PC from Mobitia (which of course means it did not exist until today :-) ).  We picked this up from Steve Paine’s CarryPad UMPC Journal They are listing both a 5.6” and a 7” display model, which should be interesting to investigate.  Here are a few specs:

Windows XP Home/Pro/Embedded?   Hmmm, no Tablet OS choice?  I imagine the 2 or 4 cell battery choice may be on different models.  PCMCIA / Cardbus slot?  That will be good news to those wanting to put their EVDO cards in, but that cannot be good news for battery life.

Steve Paine has lots more great comments on this one on his blog.

Oh well, another wait and see device….!
