Build quality looks a tad suspect, but a 7-inch touchscreen, Windows XP, stereo speakers, Bluetooth, WiFi, 2-in-1 card reader, and what appears to be an optical mouse put the Shenzhen e-Loam F7 UMPC a step or two above the majority of devices that come out of China. It also has 1GB of RAM, a 0.3-megapixel web cam, what is most likely an 80GB hard drive (the "8G BSANISK hard disk" on the product page looks like several typos to me), and a 1.2GHz VIA C7-M processor. Not the best by any means, sure, but definitely better than all the WinCE-based competition it's got over there.
