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 specs is comparable to the Asus Eee PC and Intel’s Neo Explore X1. The CPU is a Via C7-M (clock speed at 1.2GHz) processor with 1 GB memory, 30GB hard disk drive, a built-in 1.3MP webcam, WiFi, and 7″ LCD touch screen (with handwriting capability, WVGA 800×400).
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).
