Daewoo gives the UMPC market a try

The UMPC may not have taken off completely yet, but that hasn’t stopped more companies from jumping into the market. The latest to offer their own version is Lucoms, a subsidiary of Daewoo (don’t they make cars?).

Samsung has the Q1, but Daewoo has the M1. The Solo M1, actually. It has a 7-inch LCD screen like the Q1, but it has a few extra pixels: 800 x 480 versus 800 x 400. The processor is a 900MHz Celeron M 353, ultra-low voltage to keep your battery use realistic. Running on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, the Solo M1 packs in a 1.8-inch 30GB hard drive and 512MB of 400MHz DDR 2 SDRAM.

You have the standard choices for connectivity: 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 1.2, but you can pick up a docking station to get 10/100Mbps Ethernet . The Solo M1 has one USB port (four more on the dock) and a 4-in-1 memory card reader. It weighs 830 grams and measures 22.6 x 11.4 x 2.5 cm.
