Now it's official. "The R50A is the first UMPC that reaches the full potential of the platform." ...so it's UMPC, not a MID.
Only with the R50A do users get GPS, a webcam, 3G/ 3.5G connectivity, and full notebook functionality, making the R50A the one indispensable gadget for everyone.
The R50A’s customizable, mission-based application launcher organizes software programs into categories and makes navigating between tasks simple.
The unit’s built-in TV tuner allows you to enjoy your favorite TV shows anywhere.
The R50A will offer 3/ 3.5G connectivity. Users have full access to their data anywhere.
Capture and Communicate Anywhere
The R50A’s built-in webcam and microphone let users capture photos, video and audio wherever they are, and enable wire-free video communication.
The R50A has ample power to support the most popular office and productivity applications. With ASUS InfoPen software, users can record and edit on the R50A’s 1024 x 600 screen as easily as they could on a piece of paper.
Find Your Way Anywhere
ASUS brings you the first UMPC with built-in GPS. Users no longer need to deal with paper maps or ask for directions. Link up seamlessly to Google Maps, and the R50A will know your exact location.
