This is one of the coolest UMPC devices that I have seen in a long time. The folding keyboard is certainly drool worthy as are the specs of the system. Unfortunately the S-XGen UMPC doesn’t run real Windows but Windows CE 5.0 making it a bit weak there.

Aside from the OS the device uses a 520 MHz Xscale processor, 20 GB HDD, 256 MB of SDRAM, MMC card slot, 4” 480 x 270 screen and a wimpy 280 pixel webcam. Rounding out the feature set is WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth and tri-band GSM connectivity.The downside to all these features and coolness is that the device costs a hefty $1400. Images make the device look like a larger, wider PDA. Too bad you can’t install Windows XP apps like Office on it. Story and image via Engadget.
