It's so... so big!

Asustek showcases at CeBIT in Hannover - Germany its new ultra-mobile PC, the Asus T83 UMPC, which features 7-inch 800 x 480 touch-screen display, a 1GHz Via C7-M processor, 512MB of main memory expandable to 2GB, and an upgradeable 30GB hard drive. The T83, unlike its precursor Asus R2H, has a QWERTY keyboard and six hours of battery life, compared to R2H’s 2 hours, Engadget reports.

Asus T83 950-gram UMPC also incorporates GPS module, Bluetooth, wireless and a digital camera.

The Asustek’s second generation UMPC is expected to be available starting in Q3 2007 for between $899 and $999, and will feature Windows XP and Linux operating system options.


More comments...

More news is surfacing on the Asus T83 UMPC; or is it a small convertible Tablet PC? Semantics aside, the additional info is interesting as is the roughly five minute video. I'm a little leery of some things said in the video, most notably the 6- to 8-hour runtime. I realize this is a low-powered Via 1.0 GHz processor unit, but I'm a bit skeptical at the moment. As Bjorn notes in his post, five hours is more reasonable. The T83 is fanless, which will keep the noise and power drain down but my own experience with fanless devices is that run really hot to the touch. Since I use my UMPC primarily in my hands, I'll be curious to see how hot the new Asus will run.

The inclusion of a PCMCIA slot makes sense for the mobile set, but it was said many times in the video that the device is geared for the education market. I'm not saying that kids don't have a need to be mobile, but how many do you know that have a 3G PC Card modem? Let's see how the Asus T83 comes in at price; expected availability is 3Q of this year.
