Astone UMPC hits store shelves in Manila

Yet another player in the UMPC market has emerged. Definitely a hot item this season. The Astone UMPC is a 7 inch laptop that’s looking to grab a piece of the ultra-portable pie. See picture and specs after the jump.

One of the units was found in an Octagon store in Metro Manila.

The placement of the webcam is a little off — that’s on the right of the LCD screen. No Operating system pre-installed. Suggested retail price is Php19,500 (roughly USD$469).
