S-XGen: a compact PC with the folding QWERTY-keyboard, early info

Seamless Wi-Fi has announced an interesting device S-XGen keyboard with the folding QWERTY-keyboard, positioned as the ultra mobile PC. The company hasn’t unveiled special details, except for the phone will be equipped with a 4” LCD and can work in cell and Wi-Fi networks and via Bluetooth interface.

According to some unofficial sources, S-XGen is powered by Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 running on XScale PXA 270 520 MHz, which is quite uncustomary for UMPC concept. S-XGen is likely to be a communicator packed in an unusual form-factor, and Seamless Wi-Fi might have made a promo move. The company is to introduce its product at CES 2007 in Las Vegas scheduled for January 8-11, 2007 :headbang:

This device cannot be catogorized as an UMPC. UMPC has some base spec that must be met to be called "UMPC":
Ultra-Mobile PCs have a 20 cm (7-inch) touch sensitive screen at a minimum resolution of 800 480. Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is used with slight tweaks to the interface to make it more suited for the small form factor. In addition, a software suite known as the Touch Pack Interface is included to make the interface more suitable for use of stylus as well as hand.

The Ultra-Mobile PC is just a platform for which manufacturers can design any model they want, provided they meet or exceed the baseline specifications laid down by Intel and Microsoft. However, the UMPC will be capable of running a full version of most PC operating systems. When the UMPC was disclosed at CeBIT 2006, Samsung, ASUS and Founder had near-complete devices on display. The Samsung Q1 officially launched on March 1, 2006

UMPC devices will include a 900 MHz Intel Celeron M, Pentium M or VIA C7-M processor, 256 MB to 1 GB of RAM, and a 30 to 160 GB harddisk, depending on the manufacturer. They could also feature GPS devices, webcams, fingerprint readers, TV tuners, or memory card readers. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Ethernet are all supported as well.

Since it doesn't run XP, it isn't an UMPC. The hardware spec is also inconsistent with the baseline spec.
