Flybook V5 in US

After reported success in Europe, the Flybook V5 ultra-portable tablet PC is coming to the US, offering users similar technology to that found in the MacBook Air. According to Wired, the device features a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV U7600, a processor which places it in the same power class as Apple's ultraportable. Flybook includes Microsoft Windows Vista Business Edition, running on 4GB of memory, an 80GB hard drive, and an 8.9-inch screen touchscreen that is usable with fingers.

In terms of connectivity, the V5 includes HSDPA/EDGE/GSM wireless functionality, and a 1.3-Megapixel web cam. European users noted that the miniature tablet PC suffered from a dim LCD, but this issue was allegedly addressed for the North American release, with some claiming the screen can be read in bright sunlight.

Flybook is selling the V5 for $2900, only $200 more than a Flash drive-equipped MacBook Air.
