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.

"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
