Korean UPOP debuts UMPC-like PMP

updated 09:10 pm EST, Tue December 11, 2007


Korean company UPOP recently unveiled its first device, a PMP with specifications that are akin to that of a ultra portable laptop, rather than a portable media player. Despite it's miniscule size, the player comes loaded with 30 or 60GB of storage, plus the option for additional space by way of SD cards. The tiny device is similar in design to the Sidekick, but slightly larger, and is navigable with the included stylus and built-in keyboard. Unfortunately the device is only available in Korea, so pricing and availability were not available for North America.

The UPOP device uses Windows CE 5.0 Professional as its operating system, enabling it to work with Microsoft Office documents, such as Powerpoint and Excel, and includes a built-in dictionary.

The sliding 4.8" TFT display features a crisp resolution of 800 by 600, and can play a number of rich audio and video formats, such as DivX, OGG, and VOB. The PMP also comes with WiFi built-in, which grants access to wireless web browsing, and a DMB Tuner so users can receive wireless multimedia open-air broadcasts.
