umid m1c

Netbooks are small computers. So what do you call an incredibly tiny netbok? The uSmart M1C is clearly more of a MID or Mobile Internet Device than a netbook, thanks to its tiny 4.8 inch display. While the device has a QWERTY keyboard, I dare you to try touch-typing on it with all 10 fingers.

But the mobile device does have very netbook-like specs, including a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, GMA 500 graphics, and HDMI output. It weighs just 1.1 pounds and has a 4.8 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display and is capable of running Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 or Linux.

The little laptop showed up in China recently. There’s no word on if or when it will be available internationally.

  1. cool. i had a dream about this, only it was aluminum and made by toyota of all things

  2. Hmm, looking at the size of this thing, I think it’s doubtful that it has any more than 512Mb of RAM, hardly enough to run Vista. Maaaaaaybe Win7, definitely XP and Linux, but not Vista.

    Also, the size and layout of the device reminds me of a Zipit, if anyone remembers that
