Kohjinsha SR8, 7" UMPC With Integrated DVD

Kohjinsha SR8, 7" UMPC With Integrated DVD

This little palette of portable processing certainly won't compete with the likes of the Asus Eee PC or the XO-1 from OLPC from a price standpoint but if you're the type that likes to keep things diminutive, the new SR8 from Kohjinsha is impressive.  Built on Intel's S45GU chipset and sporting an 800MHz Intel A110 processor, along with 1GB of DDR2 memory and a 60GB hard drive, the SR8 is also the first UMPC of its size that sports an integrated DVD super multi-drive.  Its 7" TFT LED backlit touchscreen display runs at a native res of 1024X600 with a max resolution of 1600X1200.  And get this, the little bugger comes standard with Windows Vista Home Premium.  Don't let that get you down though, bunky, because the rest of the deal looks pretty sweet...

 

 

 

The SR8 weighs in at a svelte 2.4lbs and comes equipped with a standard 802.11b/g WiFi, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth connectivity compliment and high def audio output, courtesy of Realtek's chipset.  Battery life is a little pokey at an estimated 3.6 hours with a 2.5 hour charge time.  US retail is reportedly going to be offered at dynamism.com.

 the processor a little weak but i guess if you want something as small as this that wont stop you

I was just looking at this not too long ago on newegg.com. Looks pretty sweet, although it is very expensive.

 This is a lot more what I thought they were going to do when the idea of the UMPC first arrived. This looks really sweet and the 800mhz cpu would be more than enough for most tasks that an ultra portable device should perform. This really is what I had hoped the ASUS R2

or Samsing Q1 should have morphed into. Hopefully  they got things right this time. It would be sweet if that keyboard passes a typing test and is actually usuable.
