First Look – Hybrid Dual Portable Computer (HDPC)

Hmm… not a UMPC, but a HDPC.  Sure looks sweet and am looking forward to its launch in July.

The following write-up extracted from AVINGUSA’s report on the HDPC –

MIU(www.miubit.com) introduced its new wireless IP-based hybrid portable device dubbed ‘HDPC (Hybrid Dual Portable Computer)’ in Korea market, which is equipped with dual OS(Windows XP/Windows CE 5.0 or Linux Qplus).

Adopting a keyboard of general PC and a 4-inch display with 800×480 resolution, the HDPC supports dual-mode function and wireless internet function. It is the concept that user can make a choice of any type of soft/hard ware according to users’ needs.

As the name ‘HDPC’ signifies, user can converge the stand-alone technologies of existing portable devices such as car PC, navigation, mobile phone, PMP, mp3, UMPC, electronic dictionary, internet phone, PSP, digital camera, voice recorder, mobile IPTV into HDPC.

The HDPC is expected to be available in July 2008, and the price would be between 400,000(KRW) and 500,000(KRW).
