Kohjinsha readies SK3 UMPC for release


UPDATE: Official Kohjinsha SK3 product page

UMPCPortal received some early info and press shots today of a new 7-inch convertible UMPC that Kohjinsha is expected to release in Japan later this week.

Estimated to sell for between $700 and $800, the Atom-based SK3 looks to be a marginal upgrade to last summer's SC3, offering little more than a modified casing, dual cameras, and 802.11n WiFi support. The unit hasn't been added to the Kohjinsha website yet so there's still a sliver of a chance that the currently reported specs (1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520, 2.3-hour battery life, XP Home) could turn out to be more impressive and upgrade-worthy [UPDATE: Nope!]. If not, at least the SK3 still has the SC3's ExpressCard/34 slot, ethernet and VGA ports, and integrated GPS.

Then again, if the SK3 doesn't bring more to the table (e.g., faster CPU, longer battery life, SSD, 3G), why not save a few hundred dollars and get the SC3 that now retails for 49,800 yen (~$521) instead?
