UMID mbook M1 gets a matching keyboardThe UMID mbook M1 has only been available for purchase in white so far, but there was once a time when the Atom-based clamshell was seen sporting red, pink, and black casings. Well, UMID has taken the mbook M1 and gone black with it. The Atom-powered clamshell looks much sleeker with the black keyboard. And you can take it more seriously too.

We don’t know when the full black model will be released, but it should be pretty soon as they seem to have tackled previous build quality issues.

Eee PC 701 prototype UMPC spottedLooks like we will be getting an Eee-branded UMPC at some future date. It almost has to come to pass, what with these drool-worthy pics of an Eee PC 701 prototype, inspired by the original Origami R2H device found on Mobile1.

It does away with the keyboard and loses some weight, at just 1.68 pounds and even comes with a stylus. Sadly there’s no word yet on any release date. It may or may not ever make it into production, but it sure looks awesome and we’ll keep our fingers crossed.

DIY gamepad attachment for Sony UX UMPC

DIY Gamepad attachment for Sony UX UMPC
Dan Middle bought Sony’s UX UMPC and found it to be severely lacking when it came to portable gaming. He did what any of us would have done, he took things into his own hands by hacking a cheap USB gamepad. The end result is a set of controls that make available all eight buttons with a single hand, while the other hand is free to aim with the UX’s mouse controls.

The gamepad has been attached to a CF dummy card, slotting into the UX’s CF port. He did some testing and found that it’s pretty decent to use. Vista even recognizes it as a gaming peripheral. I’m not sure if this spells trouble for the PSP and DS Lite, but it’s pretty cool. Video below.

Inventec UMPCs: curve your enthusiasm

Posted in UMPC by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2008

The UMPC 7-A
Inventec just released images of two new UMPCs. The UMPC 7-A and the UMPC 5-D won iF Design Awards honors, and you can see why looking at the above picture. The curved design of the UMPC 7-A is not just for looks, though it does look pretty neat. It is supposed to improve the viewing angle and make the slider QWERTY keyboard more ergonomic than a flat design.

The UMPC 5-D is more typical and focuses on a modular design. It comes with a docking station and a set of appliances of some type. No info on Inventec MID/UMPC specs so far, but the folks over at Unwired View took a guess at some. They are thinking an Intel Menlow platform, 1.33 with 45-nm 800 MHz-1.33 GHz Silverthone CPU, Poulsbo US15 chipset, 1-2 GB of RAM and 30-60 GB HDD. They might be right.
