Gigabyte readies new M704 UMPC
Six months ago, there was a rumor going around that Gigabyte would release a new UMPC within the same timeframe as its first-generation U60 (rebranded Tango Wings, Haier X6, and Medion).
Well, the speculation has just become fact with this weekend’s discovery of the Gigabyte M704. Pricing and availability haven’t been disclosed yet, but the full specs are already listed on the company’s website. In addition to a larger, redesigned 7-inch sliding display (1024 x 600), the 1.7-pound Vista Home Premium UMPC has a 1.2GHz VIA C7-M processor, 768MB of RAM, 40GB or 60GB hard drive, 1.3-megapixel camera, wi-fi (no Bluetooth?), and SD/MMC card slot.[UMPCPortal forums via jkkmobile]
