Acer is to offer a living room-friendly version of its business-oriented mini PC, the Veriton 1000, the manufacturer revealed today.

The standard Veriton is a compact, slimline system designed for call-centre desks and the like. But an Aspire-branded version with the management features swapped out for consumer-targeted components like a digital and analogue TV tuner, and five-in-one memory card reader will hit the market soon.

Samsung tight-lipped about UMPC's 'new' Intel CPU
Does Samsung's Q1 Ultra second-generation UMPC incorporate a new, as-yet-unannounced Intel mobile processor? Certainly, certain Samsung marketing material describes the CPU as a "UMPC Intel New Technology".

Samsung unveils usable UMPC
Samsung has introduced its second-generation ultra-mobile PC - in one go addressing many of the key criticism of its first UMPC, the Q1. Crucially, the new model, the Q1 Ultra, delivers a higher resolution display and incorporates a thumb-operated QWERTY keyboard.

UMPC Official Discussion:
The Ultra Mobile PC is finally here! Unveiled at CeBIT

The Ultra Mobile PC was the talk of Cebit in 2006
In 2006 much of the talk before the Cebit show started was about Microsoft's Origami project.

Via a website Microsoft dropped hints about this gadget which, when it emerged, got the much less sexy name of the Ultra Mobile PC.

With the UMPC, Microsoft tried to define a new category of portable gadget that ran a PC operating system but had a touch screen, all manner of wireless technologies, could handle audio, video and games and had a long battery life.

The idea was that the UMPC would be lighter and smaller than a laptop yet do much more than even the most sophisticated smartphone... ...But the UMPC has not gone away and Cebit 2007 sees many more of them on sale and display.

"With many new manufacturers jumping in to the concept, things have got interesting," said Mr Peter.

At Cebit 2007 Samsung, Asus, Medion and Amtek are all showing off new hardware that go beyond the basic UMPC specifications that Microsoft has laid down.

These specifications demand that a device have a 20cm (7in) touchscreen that can work at a minimum resolution of 800x480 pixels.

They also must sport USB connectors and be able to run Microsoft's DialKeys software, a program that creates a thumb-operated virtual keyboard at the bottom of the screen.

To this spec-list, manufacturers showing off new UMPCs that are smaller and lighter have added such things as fingerprint recognition, higher resolution screens, built-in web cams, digital cameras and solid-state hard drives.

Many of the new versions also run one of the variants of Windows Vista - the latest version of the Windows operating system.


Linksys side-steps Wi-Fi limits with powerline kit
