TabletKiosk Intel UMPC

TabletKiosk has generally been regarded as one of the better early UMPC manufacturers, even as it has dealt with the same problems that plague other vendors (especially short battery life). This explains why the company now has the confidence to release two new UMPC models by the end of August: the i7209 and i7210. While earlier models shipped with Via's C7 processor, 2.5" notebook hard drives, and an anemic 256 MB of RAM, the new units seem better tailored to the compact and battery-dependent nature of a UMPC. They're equipped with ULV Intel processors, more RAM, and the 1.8" drives that we typically associate with iPods and other digital audio players. The i7209 starts at $1099 for a 900 MHz Celeron-M with 512 MB of RAM and a 30 GB drive, while the i7210 steps up to a 1 GHz Pentium-M with 1 GB of RAM and a 60 GB drive. These are clearly high-end units that cater to those of us who may treat a UMPC as our only portable computer.
