The guys over at Akihabaranews got the chance to review the alpha version of the Willcom D4 (Sharp WSO16SH) last week in Tokyo, Japan and it’s looking sweet. Running on Vista, the D4 doesn’t seem as sluggish as most of the other UMPCs in the video.
The D4 features a 1.33GHz Centrino Atom Z520 CPU and according to Akihabara, the D4 is one of the first UMPCs on the market using the new CPU; a 40GB HDD, 1GB RAM, a 5″ 1024×600 TFT touchscreen. The D4 measures 84x188x25.9mm and weigh 470g.
