New UMPCs to be announced in January 2007

One of the good pieces of information to come out of the Mobile Connections conference was from Todd Lanstad, who works on the UMPC team at Microsoft. According to Todd, Microsoft is anticipating 6 – 10 additional Ultra-Mobile PC manufacturers to announce their UMPCs during the CES timeframe, which is held from January 8 – 11 in Las Vegas.

Todd shared this information during a talk on building Lifestyle applications, encouraging developers that the market is out there. I’ll have a InkShow video posted shortly that shows the kind of Lifestyle applications Microsoft is encouraging developers to build.

Advertisement will be in full-force during CES, and we will be bringing you all of the Tablet PC and UMPC news.
