UMPC contender with QWERTY from Averatec

“Popular laptop maker Averatec is said to be working on a miniature Windows XP device as an alternative to the emerging UMPCs.The information about the upcoming gadget first leaked to I4U, but soon was deleted from the website on the manufacturer’s request. Some footprints are still available around the Web, though.So, the probable Averatec AHI will run a ‘general’ version of the Tablet Edition of Windows XP. Hence it can’t be called an UMPC. The device is likely to be equipped with a 5-inch color SXGA (1280 x 1024 pixels) TFT screen and a slide-out QWERTY thumb keypad. It will be powered by a Celeron M processor and have a 30 GB microdrive. Other features will include integrated Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (802.11g), a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and a 2-megapixel camera.According to rumor, the Averatec AHI will be available by the end of this year. The estimated price is below $1000.” via

ETen G500 GPS smartphone shows up on FCC

“We first heard about the G500 GPS phone from E-Ten back in January, but now there is a vague possibility that the hot Pocket PC phone could be heading our way, because it has made an official appearance on the FCC’s website.Running on Windows Mobile 5.0, this quad-band GSM phone comes with a 65k color TFT touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, 128 MB flash ROM, 64MB SD RAM, and is powered by a S3C2400 400MHz Samsung processor. Of course, most notable of its feature list is the SiRFStarIII GPS receiver.We have no way of knowing when (and if) this will ever come to the American (or Canadian, fingers crossed) market, nor do we know how much it will cost should that ever happen. But being on the FCC site is a good indicator that they are talking to someone over here” via
