Asus officially announces its UMPC

DailyTech first brought you word of the Asus R2H UMPC back in June at Computex. Since then, the R2H has received FCC approval and today the Asus has officially announced the device. The R2H will take on the likes of the Samsung Q1 and the Sony VAIO UX50/UX90 in the Windows-based handheld scene.

As a refresher, the Asus R2H features Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, a 7" WXGA screen, a 900MHz Celeron M ULV processor, 256MB DDR2 533MHz memory (expandable to 768MB), 1.8" 4200RPM HDD (available in capacities of 20GB, 30GB, 40GB or 60GB), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11a/b/g, GPS, fingerprint reader, SD card reader and three USB 2.0 ports. All of this is packed into a 9.2" x 5.2" x 1.1" frame that weighs in at 1.8 pounds.

There is still, however, no word on pricing for the R2H. Asus officials have stated that they wanted to the device to retail for under $1,000 to be competitive. For comparison, Samsung's Q1 retails for $1,000 while Sony's VAIO UX can be had for around $1,600.
