Postby Fxx » Sat Oct 29, 2011 02:05

This is the second generation xpphone2 with windows 7.the hardware inside is better than the first one,with 2gb ram it's a little better than the fujitsu f-07c that i just sold.Have to save some money to give it a try when it's available next year.

It looks like it is actually running windows 8, look at the start button and the charms menu.

Love the design, that is a older atom platform though right? I can't handle atom processors, I gave it a try with the HP mini 2140 netbook, which was great and a well designed business oriented netbook, IMO better the any other at its time, but the platform is so painfully slow, i prefer using a virtual pc window on my macbook and get better performance there too. Im assuming nothing has changed with atom since then?
