UMPC 2.0?

Intel is showing off “reference designs” of the next generation of Tablet PCs at the Intel Developers Forum supposedly scheduled to ship sometime between the end of the year and mid-2007. According to this Engadget report, the newer models aren’t Core Duo units, but a ultra-low voltage Core Solo with 1MB of L2 cache, that delivers 1/2 the power at 1/4 the size. Note that all the models in the pic have a keyboard. Intriguing.
