A general unknown in North America, Data Evolution is releasing its first UMPC for the continent, the Cathena CX. The intent is a "fully-featured" machine that nevertheless comes in a small package. The seven-inch screen for instance supports resolutions up to 1024x768 (800x600 natively), and twists 180 degrees to turn the computer into a tablet. It uses a 500MHz AMD processor with 512MB of RAM (expandable to 1GB), and at 100GB, comes with an unusually large hard drive.

Some other amenities include Bluetooth, 802.11b/g WiFi, and a touchpad as well as a five-way joystick. Battery life is estimated to be five hours, and buyers can choose to load one of three different versions of Windows XP. Linux may be a future option. A Cathena CX costs $799. [via LinuxDevices]
