MIU reveals HDPC device

Korean company MIU has unveiled an unusual new product, the HDPC. Its name standing for "Hybrid Dual Portable Computer," the HDPC functions primarily as a handheld UMPC, running Windows XP. Its four-inch screen displays images at 800x480, and users have access to a QWERTY keyboard as well as a pointer controller, and wireless Internet. By closing the lid however users switch into dedicated phone or media player modes, with extra touches such as a camera, an electronic dictionary and voice recording.

The HDPC is in fact touted as capable of functions normally kept off of UMPCs, including navigation, VoIP telephony and IPTV video streaming. It should be released to Korea in July of this year, at a price between 400,000 and 500,000 won ($399 and $499). [via AVING]

    WOW, its like an iPhone, except: its bigger, clunkier, looks crowded has no advanced screen features, and will be a year after the iPhone.

    OH, and by June, the iPhone will start having new programs, games, features all run in software.

    I have to think that this will be an also ran type device.

    Just a thought. en
