Kohjinsha SK3 Tablet Soon

Kohjinsha is about to launch a significant overhaul of its convertible tablet netbook that will bring it to the forefront in terms of features, a leak shows. The SK3 will have 802.11n Wi-Fi and, to draw on the better wireless, both outward- and inward-facing cameras for video chats or photography. It's also one of the first tablet netbooks to support Windows 7; what this involves isn't known by UMPC Portal, but it may involve either tighter integration with the touch elements of the Microsoft OS or else a more finger-ready screen.

The resulting system would still be one of the smaller PCs of its type with a 7-inch swiveling LCD, a 1.33GHz Atom processor and 1GB of RAM. Its predecessor the SC3 has a 60GB hard drive, but it's uncertain if this will be upgraded with a larger rotating disk or replaced entirely in favor of an SSD. A formal announcement is expected sometime this week and will officially limit sales to Japan, although importers like Dynamism may bring the SK3 to the US.
