MIU "hybrid" portable PC

Displaying at the Seoul International Invention Fair, Korean manufacturer MIU has revealed the M*free, which the company describes as a "hybrid dual portable computer" (HDPC). AVING observes that aside from working as a UMPC running Windows, it's also a DMB phone, and a plug-in module adds functions such as a digital camera, MP3 playback, and USB file transfer. The screen can stand upright, lay flat, or close in either facing over the QWERTY keyboard for applications that don't require typing. The M*free should ship to South Korea in the first half of 2007 and cost somewhere between 700,000 and 800,000 won ($764 and $873). Click through for more photos.
