Gigabyte M528 Launch Info

Gigabyte today gave release info one of the first known ultra-mobile PCs using Intel's Atom processor. The M528 will first appear in the Taiwan area in late July and should be priced in the middle of the UMPC range at an equivalent of $750; the device centers around the extremely energy-efficient 800MHz version of the Atom that should extend battery life even with additional performance and features versus the earlier A110 chip.

The handheld revolves around a 4.8-inch, 800x480 touchscreen but also has a slide-out keyboard and a directional pad. Internet access is supplied over Wi-Fi as well as 3G cellular providers using HSDPA, either of which lets the M528 capture photos or video with its 3-megapixel back camera or join video chats with a VGA front camera. A stock version of the Gigabyte computer comes with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of flash storage that support its custom version of Linux.

US launch info isn't available, though Gigabyte is believed to be readying the UMPC for export to other areas. [via Pocket-lint]
