Kohjinsha UMPC-like handheld coming soon


Building on a scoop from Akihabara News

Japanese company Kohjinsha will soon enter the UMPC-esque market with its SA series of 8.6" x 6.4" x 0.9" screen-swiveling PCs. Available in two configurations, the 2-pound devices will run Windows XP Home Edition on an AMD Geode LX800 processor and be equipped with WLAN, Bluetooth, Compact Flash card slot, some kind of additional 3-in-1 media card slot, and what I think is a 7-inch widescreen display. The 40GB SAF100A and 80GB SAF100B (termed the "office model") can be ordered with either 512MB or 1GB of memory; the 512MB models will sell for just $760 and $930, respectively, when they start shipping in December. No readable word on 1GB pricing.

I doubt these little computers will ever make it to the U.S., but they may be available through online import shops like Dynamism and Conics.
