MIU HDPC does everything

The MIU Hybrid Dual Portable Computer (HDPC) does everything your current UMPC does and more. Interestingly, MIU’s HDPC dual boots in either Windows CE 5.0 or Qplus Linux, hence, the ‘Dual’ part in its name. Measuring 163 x 67 x 24.5 mm, personally, I think the thing is an ugly, bulky beast, but you can’t ignore its features. MIU packed a cell phone, UMPC, GPS navigation, electronic dictionary, media player, VoIP, a PSP rival, digital camera, e-Book reader, mobile IPTV, and voice recorder (I wonder if I missed anything?) into the HDPC. Specifically, highlights include:

* 4-inch internal Samsung display (800 x 480 resolution)
* 2.2-inch external display (320 x 240 resolution)
* Up to a 1GHz VIA C7M ULV processor
* up to 4GB RAM
* up to 60GB HDD (or optional 4GB SSD)
* 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi support
* 3/5 megapixel camera with flash
* miniSD/microSD card slot
* Bluetooth 2.0
* PS2 mouse/keyboard connector
* built-in stereo speakers
* QWERTY keypad and joystick
* USB 2.0
* Battery life: 7 hours

Pics and pricing details of the “all-in-one wonder” after the jump.


Seriously, this thing’s spec sheet just goes on and on. I’m sure I missed something. Anyways, MIU plans on unleashing the HDPC beast in July 2008 in Korea, for between 400,000 and 500,000 KRW ($400- $500).
