'Hybrid Dual Portable Computer' does XP and Linux


Coming to Korea in July is the MIU HDPC, which stand for Hybrid Dual Portable Computer. The “dual” part comes from the fact that it can run Linux Qplus or Windows XP/Windows CE 5.0 — which I’m going to read as Windows XP Embedded, but don’t quote me on that. She’s a brick-like beast but that just means there’s more to love.


The device itself does many things — many wonderful things — like make and take phone calls, surf the world wide web, play music and videos, and more. There’s a 4-inch 800 x 480 display, 802.11 wireless and Bluetooth, and the option of having a 30- or 60-gigabyte hard drive or a 4GB Flash drive. The battery time is rated at 7 hours on high-power mode or 90 hours on low-power mode, which is thoroughly unbelievable to me. I’m guessing the 90-hour spec is for phone-only mode or something. Here’s more.


It’ll be available in Korea in July starting at about 400,000 KRW ($400).
