A few months ago a Korean company introduced a handheld computer called the Ocosmos OCS-1. At the time we learned that the little machine would be powered by an Intel Atom Oak Trail chip, GMA 600 graphics, and a 32GB solid state disk. Now the complete spec list is available, and it looks like the machine may be coming to the US as well as Korea.
According to the spec sheet obtained by UMPC Portal, the OCS-1 is aimed at AT&T in the US and KT in Korea, and could launch in the first quarter of 2011.
The computer looks like a phone or a handheld gaming system, with direction-pad buttons on the sides, and a slide-up screen that reveals a QWERTY keyboard underneat.
Spec-wise,we’re looking at a 1.5GHz or 1.9GHz single core Atom Oak trail chip, a 400MHz graphics processor with support for HD video decoding, and 720p HD video encoding. It runs Windows 7.
The handheld has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, and 3G connectivity and a 5 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel capacitive touchscreen display. The computer has 32GB of stroage, a microSD card for expansion and a USB 2.0 port. It also has 2wo cameras – a rear-facing 5MP camera and a 1.3MP front-facing webcam.
There’s a gyroscope and proximity and light sensors.
Chippy seems a bit skeptical of the company’s promise that the OCS1 will be a good mobile gaming machine, since the CPU is fairly slow and there’s no disc drive for playing disc-based games. But the thing still looks pretty cool and could be great for downloaded games or online casual games.
