How Sungjut managed to squeeze all those features into a case measuring 230 mm x171 mm x 29.4 mm and weighing in under 1 kg is quite beyond us, but if the keyboard doesn't completely suck and pricing is reasonable, the Sungjut TangoX Nano UMPC looks like a solid winner. There is no word on pricing or availability yet, but stay tuned for further announcements. [Akihabara News]

This is another variant of the VIA Nanobook reference design, just like the Everex Cloudbook and the Packard Bell Easynote XS...if you take the time to hunt them down, there are a few others, as well.

The primary difference I'm seeing in this build is the relocation of the trackpad (smart) and the retention of the dockable hardware widget bay (questionable).

Though some iteration of this hardware ref may yet be an "EEE Killer", those that have been released thusfar haven't exactly set the world afire.

@regnez:

For the record, your addition to the record is wrong: the EEE PC has a "Home" key that functions as a Win key when Windows is installed, but is by default a shortcut key in EEEXandros. There is no Windows logo on the key.
