SPH-P9200: An Updated UMPC from Samsung (Video)

You know, outside the context of the tech-oriented blogosphere, I have yet to encounter anyone in the real world who is actually using a UMPC, regardless of whether it has a physical keyboard or a virtual one. There’s no shortage of people using compact laptops of the under 12.1-inch variety, but I have not seen a UMPC.

With the relatively low prevalence of UMPCs among the general populace, you’ve got to wonder if something like the Samsung SPH-P9200, which improves upon the SPH-9000 that preceded it, is going to be an easy sell. I do like the funky “twisty, bendy, foldable loveliness” of the design, because everything folds up nice and neat when not in use.

Key features include a Via C7-M processor, 512MB RAM, 30GB HDD, Windows XP Home, 1.3 megapixel camera, optical joystick, full QWERTY keyboard, and a 5-inch 800×480 screen. Networking options include HSDPA, WiFi, and WiBro, in addition to the SIM card slot. The standard 20Whr battery provides about two hours of life.
