III showed off Frankestein device at Computex that’s part netbook and part UMPC. They took an HP Mini 1000, gutted it and replaced its stock components with a VIA C-7 processor. They chopped off the display and replaced it with a slate-style device that runs on an ARM processor and Android.
This device is obviously just a working concept, but it looks awkward to say the least. “New” designs like this make me wish that HP (or someone else) would dust off the Compaq tc1100’s blueprints.
