If Informatic Center’s €1475 (~$1880) asking price for the Asus R50A was what knocked the Atom-based UMPC off your gadget shortlist, then pick up the 1.1-pound slate, dust off its 5.6-inch WSVGA touchscreen, and put it back where it belongs. Why? Because Dynamism has priced the 3G-enabled UMPC, which includes a slim external DVD burner, foldable USB keyboard, and Bluetooth mouse (among other accessories), at $1399.
Shipment is expected on December 22nd.[Product page]
