Introducing the smallest device to run Windows Vista Home Premium, the Sharp Willcom D4 (Sharp WS016SH). It may look like a cellphone (smartphone) at first glance, but in actuality, the Willcom D4 is a rather sleek looking ultra mobile PC. Besides running Vista, the device features a 1.3GHz Intel Atom processor, tilting 5-inch backlit touchscreen display (1024 x 600 pixels), 1GB of RAM, 40GB hard drive, 2.0 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, built-in one-seg TV tuner, and a microSD card slot. It even has a really tiny QWERTY keyboard for the texting and email fanatics. Video demonstration of Sharp’s Willcom D4 after the jump…

The device measures 3.3 x 7.4 x 1.0 inches and weighs a little over a pound (470 grams). Unfortunately, it appears its size mirrors its performance. Beyond Internet and email use, the Willcom D4 appears to disappoint thanks to Sharp’s decision to run Microsoft’s resource-heavy Windows Vista. Regardless, the “little-UMPC-that-could” is currently available in Japan for 128,600 Yen (around $1,170 USD).
