MIU HDPC is phone and PC

South Korea's Mobile Intelligent Ubiquitous (MIU) has released the third version of its Hybrid Dual Portable Computer (HDPC), which, fittingly, has two screens, two processors and two operating systems. Not quite a netbook, but a lot larger than a smartphone, the device features a 4.1-inch, 800x480 TFT screen that slides and then flips over to reveal a 320x240, 2.4-inch AMOLED display and keypad. An ARM processor handles phone-related tasks like capturing photos, playing music, and navigating the WinCE operating system. The phone operates either over VoIP or GSM/GPRS/CDMA networks.

An Intel Atom processor, in turn, runs the Windows XP operating system along with web-browsing, navigation and DMB functions. Switching between the dual modes of the hybrid device is done via manually selecting the preferred method.

The HDPC is currently available for purchase in Korea for the equivalent of about $500. [via Pocketables]
