Further news emerges from Seamless WiFi Inc’s news spigot about their S-XGen compact PC, the curvy handheld with the trick fold-out keyboard that we discussed earlier this month. Most importantly are the specs.
Oh dear oh dear, 470×270 resolution? Seamless point out that this is 1/4 VGA, but UMPC users are currently spoilt with a range of decent displays peaking at the highly-squintable 800×600 4.5″ display on Sony’s tiny UX micro-PC. They do say the spec is “subject to change” so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
There’s also a video available showing the fold-out keyboard in action – kudos for the flip-out stand, Seamless, something that a few UMPC designers have neglected. Warning: the video starts immediately and has no transport controls.
