Tango Wings UMPC: Rebadged Arima for Korea
If Sungju Computer‘s upcoming Tango Wings UMPC looks exactly like the Medion device or Gigabyte U60, it’s because they’re actually all one and the same (and you remember that they’re all Arima UM650 units, right?). Like the Medion and Gigabyte, this "new" UMPC has Vista Home Premium, 1GHz VIA C7-M, 30GB HDD, up to 768MB of RAM, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, and an SD card slot.
It’s difficult to make out in the picture, but that’s the word "Wings" printed below the 6.5" WVGA (800 x 480) display. And as far as I can tell, Tango is to Sungju the way Vaio is to Sony. So this is just the newest addition to the Korean company’s Tango PC family, which already includes the Tango Mini, Tango Mini Duo, and Tango Cocktail.
Beginning on April 23rd, the Tango Wings can be (pre?)ordered from GS e-shop for about $643 (without GPS module) and $857 (with GPS). The pricing doesn’t really seem right to me, but unless Babel Fish and Google Translate are conspiring against prospective UMPC buyers in Korea, I’m assuming it’s accurate.[AVING Korea | Lazion via PMP Inside]
