Gigabyte to follow U60 with new UMPC

Gigabyte_u60_launchDigiTimes is reporting that shortly after Gigabyte makes available its initial stock of 500 U60 (also known as the Medion, Tango Wings, and Haier X6) UMPCs in Taiwan next week, the VIA-based unit will "hit the global market." Exactly where and when other regions can expect to see the supposedly $808 device is unknown, but Gigabyte already has plans to launch a second UMPC within the same timeframe (that being the "second half of 2007"), possibly offering consumers a tough choice at the cash register.

The company is also said to be working with Chunghwa Telecom to get either the U60 or the new unit (or both?) hooked up with 3G/3.5G wireless connectivity.
