Medion RIM 1000 UMPC

Medion this morning revealed its RIM 1000 ultra-mobile PC, marking a slightly different take on the common UMPC formula. Its keyboard is split, allowing for a more comfortable fit and preventing accidental key presses; it also has a 6.5-inch screen versus the more common 7-inch model, reducing the overall footprint in a bag. Reflecting its company's tendencies, it also focuses much more heavily on media playback with Vista Home Premium, a larger default 768MB of RAM, and a webcam.

Shipping in May, the RIM 1000's stock configuration comes with a 1GHz C7-M, a 30GB hard drive, and an SD card reader. It should go on sale first in the UK for 800 ($1,600); further releases in Europe and North America have yet to be discussed. [via Pocket-lint]
