“Samsung’s SPH-P9000 UMPC grabbed hearts and attention at the end of last year bringing a new level of twisty, bendy, foldable loveliness to the ultraportable table. Now their follow-up, the SPH-P9200, has broken cover – it might look pretty sparse on specs, but the low-voltage VIA processor should manage some decent battery life. Chippy over at UMPC Portal has managed to dig up the user manual and of course there’s a video (after the cut) of the device in action at GITEX 2007.Ignore the processor and take a look at the networking options – HSDPA, WiFi and WiBro – and imagine yourself playing on your lovely UMPC wherever your heart leads you. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on one!
