I did a little bit of checking on Hugo’s Toshiba UMPC article where he talks about an upcoming article in www.apcmag.com regarding a Toshiba UMPC. I checked with a source of mine at Toshiba and he had this to say:
Sorry, but my inquiries with product planning are coming up blank. Nobody knows what he is referring to… wish I could help.
- Dan asks Matt if this ““mysterious deviceÃ¢â‚¬Â is going to compete with the Nokia 770. Matt admits that they have a project underway, it is nothing like a PDA, it will support tablet pc functionality with a strong focus on a much ““more natural user input.Ã¢â‚¬Â
- The device will have loads of connectivity options
- That devices smaller than 7Ã¢â‚¬Â are difficult to use all day every day.
- That the devices like the one they are working on will need to handle rich digital multi-media.
- Dan asks him if it is another Tablet PC. Matt tells him that there will be support for pen input, but wouldn’t want to classify it in the Tablet PC category.
- He also says that it will be different in terms of weight and form factor.
The context of the article, the direct questions and direct answers, all point to an upcoming Toshiba UMPC.
