FlipStart now priced at $699

Flipstart_699UMPCPortal just got word that the FlipStart 1.0 clamshell UMPC that first went on sale for $1999 and later dropped to $1499 is now selling for only $699. FlipStart Labs themselves confirm the new price, which actually just went into effect yesterday, so the huge slashing isn’t exclusive to a particular retailer or a limited-time offer or sale. It’s simply the new price.

You may remember from my FlipStart review that the unit’s biggest sticking point was its exorbitant original price. A 1.1GHz Pentium M unit with a 30GB hard drive and 512MB of RAM wasn’t worth $2000. Not by a long shot.

But the same device for nearly a third of the cost? Tempting.
