Another Ultraportable

I've always thought the Kohjinsha ultraportables looked pretty nice, especially in terms of form factor, but they seemed just a tad expensive for my taste.

Well, now, according to this article over at Aving, they're releasing a model on February 29th that will cost around $US630. I'm not sure whether that release date is for the US or Asia.

I won't be throwing out my Air, but it's interesting to see Kojinsha entering the Eee style arena.

Even more interesting than the fact that it runs on an AMD Geode LX800 chip, has 40GB of disk, 512MB of RAM and a 1024x600 resolution display is that it can transform into a touch sensitive tablet and runs for 3.5 hours on a charge.

Pretty amazing for the price.
