Further news emerges from Seamless WiFi Inc’s news spigot about their S-XGen compact PC, the curvy handheld with the trick fold-out keyboard that we discussed earlier this month. Most importantly are the specs.
- 520Mhx XScale processor
- 128mb RAM
- 20gb hard drive
- WiFi (only b)
- Tri-band cellular (900/1800/1900 MHz)
- SD/CF slots
- Stereo speakers
- 4.25″ transflective display (470×270)
- 8hr battery life
- Windows Mobile OS
Oh dear oh dear, 470×270 resolution? Seamless point out that this is 1/4 VGA, but UMPC users are currently spoilt with a range of decent displays peaking at the highly-squintable 800×600 4.5″ display on Sony’s tiny UX micro-PC. They do say the spec is “subject to change” so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
There’s also a video available showing the fold-out keyboard in action – kudos for the flip-out stand, Seamless, something that a few UMPC designers have neglected. Warning: the video starts immediately and has no transport controls.
