Wibrain's B1 UMPC is Super Connected, Super Ugly

Illustration for article titled Wibrains B1 UMPC is Super Connected, Super Ugly

Getting a UMPC with every wireless connection capability you could dream of will cost you. If that UMPC is Wibrain's business-centric B1, that price will be largely social as your peers ridicule you for toting your goofy gadget around the office. 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.1, GSM/GPRS/EDGE and HSDPA are all yours along with a 4.8" touch screen LCD running at 1024x600. Owners can also customize the innards with a CPU (1GHz, 1.2Ghz or 1.6Ghz), memory (512MB or 1GB) and HDD space (30/60/80GB) for about $650 when it launches in Korea this October. [AVING via Wired]

I'm with the other commenters: thumbs up.

QWERTY kb, trackpad, jog dial and dedicated buttons neatly laid out around a sweet widescreen for $650?

I would definitely consider this more than any UMPC yet.

Oh, and the thickness of it is definitely a pretty large factor in how I feel about this.
