Atree UM10 e-dictionary slides and tilts

Atree_um10Uh-oh. It looks like iriver will be getting some serious competition in the Asian multimedia e-dictionary market soon as fellow Korean company Atree appears set to unleash its brand new UM10, hands-down the most gorgeous PMP/e-dictionary hybrid I’ve ever seen (shh, don’t tell the D26).

Featuring an already impressive 3-inch widescreen display (480 x 272, 260K colors), T-DMB tuner, FM radio, microSD slot, Flash games, and complete PMP functionality (MP3, OGG, WMA, MPEG4, WMV, etc.), the 4.0" x 2.5" x 0.7" device one-ups all of its competitors not only by offering 4GB of internal flash storage, but also by adopting the slide-and-tilt design of the HTC Shift.

That’s right! Beneath what looks like a standard PMP or miniature slate lurks a QWERTY keyboard . . . that may actually be entirely reliant on a stylus. I’m sure it responds to thumbs, too, but none of the press shots confirm it.

As usual with these kinds of devices, pricing and availability are currently unknown. If I had to venture a guess right now, though, I’d say "about $500" and "only in Korea."

I’m starting to forget about the wifi-enabled Nurian Z1 . . .
