Astone's UltraMobilePC Surf

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Looking at Astone's latest ads in PC Buyer's Guide, I notice they're building public interest on their own version of the Via Openbook MiniNote (I blogged about Via opening up the reference design for manufacturers).

As announced in the ad, the Astone unit will be powered by a C-7M processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, pumped with 2GB of RAM and have 60GB of storage. It will have an 8.9 " LCD screen, similar to the HP Mini-Note's. Connectivity options include the now standard 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11 b/g WiFi and Bluetooth. The unit will also have a built-in card reader, 3 USB ports and a VGA out connector for outputting to a larger monitor.

Aside from a slight difference in specs, it's very much like the reference design opened up by Via. In case you've forgotten, here are images of that reference design:
