Future of UMPCs according to Intel

Just uploaded to YouTube two days ago is a new UMPC-centric video (supposedly by Intel) that ends with the words "Ultra Mobile: It lets me be me."  It includes various scenarios showcasing how unknown and presumably concept UMPCs and other ultra-mobile devices fit into, simplify, and enhance everyday life.

Check out the video below and tell me what you think. Real or fake? Considering that four new UMPCs (including this lovely one) are expected to be announced at next week’s Intel Developer Forum, my vote is for "real."

In addition to wondering why the producers/directors didn’t choose someone with much smoother lips, I find it interesting that only one of the UMPCs has a keyboard. I also almost fainted when I saw that red device; I immediately thought it was going to turn out to be a redesign of the one shown here.
