Kohjinsha rebrands UMID M1 as PM series
More commonly associated with convertible UMPCs like the SC3 series, Kohjinsha has decided to forgo the swiveling touchscreen this time around with its new PM series, a compact clamshell that is really nothing more than a rebranded version of one of the lower spec'd UMID mbook M1 devices. All that Kohjinsha is offering for 59,800 yen (~$643), then, is a 1.1GHz Intel Atom processor, 512MB RAM, 16GB SSD, Windows XP, 4.8-inch WSVGA touchscreen, and 1.3-megapixel webcam.
Yeah, compared to the 1.3GHz CPU, 32GB SSD, built-in 3G, and matte black casing you can get under the UMID brand instead, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about here.[Kohjinsha | PC Watch]
