Now that we’ve got the whole "netbook Atom" versus "UMPC Atom" business squared away, UMPCPortal brings word of a new HSDPA-equipped Wibrain UMPC called the I1 that is due for release in October. The upcoming device looks very similar to the B1 series, with the most notable hardware changes being some nicely rounded corners, a WWAN antenna, SD card slot, and what looks to me like a slightly different finish. The I1 will take a seat next to the Kohjinsha SC3, Willcom D4, and Fujitsu U2010 on the Centrino Atom (Menlow) bus, though it will likely have to sit in the back row because of its 1.1GHz (Z510) and 1.33GHz (Z520) processor options.
In addition to a few spring-inspired casing colors, other options will include your choice of operating system (Windows XP or Linux) and storage space (30/60GB hard drive or up to 64GB SSD).
Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but there’s already a placeholder product page up for it at Dynamism.
