Cloudbook UMPC uncovered some details about an upcoming mini-notebook from China’s SkyTone. If the SkyTone Alpha 400 looks familiar, there’s a good reason for that. The computer appears to sport the same casing and most of the same specs as the 3K Razorbook 400.
The Alpha 400 packs a 7 inch display, a 400MHz CPU, a Linux-based OS, an SD car dslot, 2 USB ports, Ethernet and optional WiFi, GPRS, CDMA, and ADSL modules. It does look like the Alpha 400 has a few things setting it apart from the 3K Razorbook 400. The SkyTone system has just 1GB of flash storeage and 128MB of RAM, while the Razorbook has 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and 3 USB ports.

i think it is already high time to put the PRICES of all of your products on your website, and update it everyday. at least buyers will know the daily trend of prices on all of your products on your websites. prices must be for sample and volume. you have to make your business looks more honest and transparent. do not start manufacturing your new models during the hktdc electronic fairs, and put very high selling prices during the fairs, this is very unfair..so it is not worth for buyers to buy your products during the fairs.. so looks like buyers have to buy your products after the fairs when prices start droping down. since you are not putting the prices of all of your products on your website, i think you are having different prices for buyers from different locations… thanks
This is Fran from Exon. We are the Chinese ODM manufacturer behind most of the 7″ minilaptop Linux computers offered by different oversea brands (Alpha 400, 3K RazorBook 400, Trendtac, etc).
Our current offer for 1K of these computers is USD89 each (2008 Nov), and we have just also upgraded the processor to Intel XScale. Thank you.

Uh, everyone but Ingenic is to be blamed, Ingenic just sells a 336 MHz Jz4730 and a 360 MHz Jz4740 and as far as I know they don’t have anything running at 400 MHz.
Actually, I’m starting to think everything is a rebadget Skytone. Look at this picture:
It says “Skytone” on the PCB. It also has an Ingenic Jz4730 (not Jz4732!), see this picture:
This cpu runs at its official speed of 336 MHz, so it seems everyone has been lying about the 400 MHz. See here:
And it´s also sold under the name Belco Alpha 400 from Hong Kong based Bestlink (https://www.bestlinkeshop.com/). With the same specs as the Skytone.
