Wibrain B1 UMPC

The Korean company Wibrain is developing an unusual business UMPC, codenamed the B1. Rather than conform to standard tablet or laptop shapes, the B1 opts to go wide, splitting a QWERTY keyboard between either side of a 4.8-inch touchscreen. To refine control even further, the company has added a trackpad located on the right, with corresponding mouse buttons and a scrollwheel sitting on the left. Buyers will have to choose a VIA CPU running between 1 and 1.6GHz, with 512MB or 1GB of RAM; the B1 is otherwise a high performer however, having features such as 1024x600 resolution, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 0.3-megapixel webcam.

Network connectivity is primarily through 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, but mobile users have the option of tri-band HSDPA, as well as quad-band GSM, GPRS and EDGE. Hard drive storage meanwhile should be as ample as the bandwidth, with the choice of 30, 60 or 80GB disks. Wibrain intends to ship the B1 to Korea in mid-October for prices between 600,000 and 700,000 won ($650-759). [via AVING]
