Daewoo Lucoms Solo M1 UMPC

Daewoo Lucoms apparently decided to get into the ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) game, shipping its handsomely-styled Solo M1 which has a 7-inch touchscreen, 1.3-megapixel video camera and a DMB TV tuner for those Asians fortunate enough to have access to such signals. It's powered by an Intel Celeron 900 processor.

It looks like the Korean company has attempted to make the small Microsoft Tablet PC a little more versatile by adding a cradle station to its bag of tricks. But if it's anything like its Korean competitor, the Samsung Q1, it's just another pretty face which is awkward to use and doesn't do much of anything very well. We are quite fond of its red trim, however. But red trim and style over substance is not going to get work (or play) done.
