The first devices to be based on Chipzillaís Centrino Atom were unveiled atthe Intel Developer Forum in Shanghai recently. The Centrino Atom was developedby the chip behemoth for small, pocketable devices based on Linux,. The firm hasshowed laptop prototypes of just such devices. But Chipzilla had also announcedthat about 20 other devices based on the diminutive chip would be released soon,and it appears that the D4 is one of them.
At 84 mm by 192mm by 26mm and weighing in at 470 grams, the D4 isnít exactlythe most comfortable thing to shove in your pocket, but it is portable. To makeup for the fact that nobody really wants to carry a brick around as a handsetall day, Willcom has decided to offer a smaller cell phone to go with it. Thecell phone will have a Bluetooth connection to the D4, which you can dump inyour bag or on the nearest table. Sounds practical, eh?
As for the deviceís specs, Sharpís little portable brick does come with a1.33GHz Atom processor, a five-inch widescreen display, 1G byte of RAM, 40G-byteof hard disk, a two-megapixel camera and of course Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It alsoboasts a slide-out 64-key keyboard and a tilty-uppy monitor. Instead of runningLinux though, the D4 runs Vista, and therefore includes the Voleís 2007 Officeset. So an expensive brick running Vista then. Bet the Japanese canít wait.
