More SSD options for UMPCs

Low power, high performance and very durable. Should we settle for less on our UMPCs..

SanDisk's new uSSD 5000 mini SSD drive's coming soon!

Details at

SanDisk's press release

HTC Shift UMPC shipping with "limited" Windows Mobile 6?

I noticed that on preview video at there was many things missing on the WM6 interface... like Start button.

Kaz was just playing with it and noticed the same:"The current model only got a "limited" Windows Mobile 6 built in. No Mobile Office in it."

So can we install other softwares to it? If it will be limited version with limitations, it really can't justify the native resolution of 800 x 480.

You better put full WM6 with Office and SideShow goodness to it HTC!!!

Follow up on HTC Shift News

There is no clear info about the native resolution but Windows Mobile is running at 640 x 480 ( with black areas on both sides, centered ) and Vista at 800 x 480 and 1024 x 600. To me it looks like native resolution is 800 x 480 with really good software interpolation.

It looks thinner as earlyer thought, looks like about 25mm.

HTC Shift UMPC size confirmed

Now we need the rest of the details and a big button labeled "Buy, Available Now"

Hmmm.. So there is only 19 mm size difference with Fujitsu U1010 with smaller 5.6 inch screen.. If Shift will sell near $/€1000 with HSDPA, it will eat others alive.

UPDATE: looks actually thinner than 31mm

UPDATE: confirmed as 207mm (L) x 129 mm (W) x 25 mm (T).. with 800g for weight
