New HP UMPC details

New information has surfaced on HP's planned UMPC system, a report out of Taiwan indicates. The Chinese-language publication Commercial Times notes that a UMPC order has been farmed out to a company called Inventec, which is expected to deliver hardware to HP for an April commercial release. The report further suggests that the system uses a 45nm Intel Penryn processor, and as previously hinted, an 8.9-inch screen.

Newly exposed is that the machine is being targeted as a "high-end" model, and will cost at least $630, $130 more than ASUS' most expensive Eee PC. It is however said to use Windows XP instead of Vista, contradicting an earlier leak. [via DigiTimes]
