Raon Digital Vega II coming soon

Raon_logoI just received an email from Raon Digital confirming that the successor to their Vega handtop is definitely in the works and slated for a release "within this year." The company is waiting for "the right time" to release information and did not comment on the Vega II (Vega 2) name or any of the rumored specs (built-in Bluetooth and wi-fi, AMD Geode LX900 processor) I pointedly asked about.

I think a number of folks hoped and/or expected the Vega II to be at CeBIT last week, perhaps more so after Digital Cube’s i-station G43, the self-proclaimed "smallest UMPC in the world," got so much coverage. Too bad most of it was inaccurate. Yes, all that talk about a 500MHz LX800/900 CPU, 4.3-inch display, and 30GB/60GB hard drive—even all the images (merely a modified NetForce): far from being set in stone. Still, you see a brick-like UMPC with an AMD Geode CPU, 4.3-inch screen, and Windows XP, you think of the Raon Digital Vega. Then you hear about integrated wi-fi and Bluetooth and think about the Vega II.

At least I do.
