ECS markets a UMPC sized device as a Tablet PC with FCC approval

Elitegroup Computer Systems has just received the Federal Communications Commission's thumbs-up on its version of an ultra mobile PC.

The H70 is an Intel Pentium M powered UMPC which will come in two different models: Value and Premium. The Value model comes with an Intel Celeron M 900MHz CPU with a 400MHz front-side bus and 512KB L2 cache, 256MB of DDR400 flavored SDRAM, and a 30GB hard while the Premium model will come with an Intel Pentium M ULV 1GHz CPU with a 400MHz front-side bus and 2MB of L2 cache, 512MB of DDR400 SDRAM, and a larger 60GB hard drive.

According to UMPC News, both models will feature a 7-inch WVGA TFT display at 800x480 resolution, a 3-in-1 flash reader, a 1.3 megapixel camera, high-definition 7.1 channel audio with built-in speaker and mic, 802.11b/g WLAN and Bluetooth capabilities, and a touch sensitive screen with a stylus, which is standard on UMPCs, and a Synaptics pointing stick.

All sources stressed that the H70 is not going to be marketed as an Origami device, but rather a Tablet PC. Pricing has not been seen on the H70 but we should expect to see numbers around those of other UMPC devices.
