Willcom D4 (Sharp WS016SH) UMPC teardown

Eep! I can’t look! I can’t look! Without considering my feelings as a soon-to-be owner of the Willcom D4 at all, PC Watch (via Wow-Pow) viciously cracked open the Atom-based UMPC and photographed its insides for all to see. Monsters!


Now I know how those people who stand in line for days feel when they see some punk kid walk out of a store, unwrap their object of lust, and smash it to bits on the sidewalk.

Well, okay, a careful teardown isn’t exactly the same thing as senseless carnage.


But trust me. If you were as anxious as I am for the D4 to be delivered (cross your fingers for Friday or Saturday at the latest!), seeing it taken apart would make you queasy too.

  • Has yours arrived yet? According to the tracking info, mine is Honolulu (where I live) and “processing at delivery post office.” The page was last updated about 11 hours ago, so there’s a chance that it could be with me today!
