Lluon Mobbit MID on sale
The Lluon Mobbit MID from TriGem (known as Averatec in North America) first seen in December has now gone on sale in its home market of Korea. The mobile Internet device sports a 4.8-inch, 1024x600 touchscreen and is powered by a 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU, along with 1GB of RAM. The pre-loaded operating system on the 30GB flash drive is Windows XP Home.
Other features include Wi-Fi along with a Bluetooth connection, along with a WiBro link to access Korea's mobile broadband data network. A two-megapixel camera along with mini-USB and full size USB ports round out the device's specs.
In Korea, the device is priced at the equivalent of about $577, which makes it the least expensive Microsoft-based UMPC to date. There is still no indication on whether or not the device will be coming to North America under the Averatec label. [via Pocketables]
