Averatec's Lluon Mobbit

Korea's TG Sambo, more commonly known in North America as Averatec, has announced what should be the first Atom-based mobile Internet device (MID) to be produced within the country. The Lluon Mobbit relies on a 1.33GHz Atom processor, paired with 1GB of 533MHz RAM and a choice of 30GB hard drive or 16GB solid-state drive. A 4.8-inch touchscreen on the device is said to support extremely high resolutions, possibly as sharp as 1024x6000.

Although using Windows XP Home as its base operating system, Averatec has created its own overlay media interface, which borrows aesthetically from Apple's iPhone and Cover Flow technologies. The device further supports Korean-only technologies such as T-DMB TV and WiBro, the latter being a relative of WiMAX; more conventional features should include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a two-megapixel camera. The Mobbit will ship in January at a cost of 600,000 won ($405), though a North American version is unlikely.
