Digitimes is reporting that the R50 UMPC might be shipping before June of this year and it looks like we might see Linux and Vista flavors. The curious statement in the DigiTimes report is that it says the price will be above US $500. Don’t we usually see that listed as below and not above? Oh, well, I guess that gives them some head room and a fudge factor.
This is also the first techology report that I’ve seen where a company saying that the sub-prime financial crunch will affect shipments. Intriguing.
