Intel to show concept — “Donley”This time its the “Donley”, we’ve seen something very similar to this in the past . So the biggest question is “when is Intel moving to production?” We’ve seen many designs from Intel on the UMPC Portal and till date there has not been one that has moved on to production or has any confirmation of the launch date.
The concept has a 5″ display, seems to be running vista with all communications built in and an improved design for mobility.

The biggest news in march is the HTC Shift
A while ago, we thought it was only the HTC Athena or the Ameo or the Advantage that they were talking about — NO, HTC has announced the “Shift” the UMPC that we’ve all been waiting for.
…the Shift (codename Shangri-La), is officially announced today. We don’t yet have hard details on release date or price, but we do know it should be available in Q3 (we’d estimate for under $2,000). As for features, we know not to expect anything out of the ordinary (except lots of 3G)…
The specs of the device are
- VIA CPU (the one we tried had a 1.2GHz chip)
- Vista business (yes, it was running Aero)
- 7-inch sliding, tiling wide-touchscreen
- 30GB drive
- Tri-band UMTS / HSDPA, quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE
- WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0
- Biometric reader, front-facing camera
The design looks impressive, and the keyboard is very much the same as they have used it in their previous model. Hope the pricing will be as engadget puts it (under $2000) — that could mean $1999, but we’ll like it to be around a grand.

Looks like HTC would prefer to partner with OEMs to get their products out there, as it has always done. DigiTimes reports that
The stock price of VIA rose nearly 7% to close at NT$27.15 on December 19 due to rumors that the company will partner with High Tech Computer (HTC) on development of a new UMPC. The price reached a three month peak.
If this happens we’d have the best of breed UMPC. DigiTimes also confirmed that Asus is working on its 2nd release of UMPCs which this time will be powered by VIA. The company has already showcased them. It is also predicted that UMPC market will hit a whopping 130 million units during 2007.

Yes you read it right. We feel it’s not going to be easy and you might be in great deal of issues. But one of our reader Igor sent us this email.
Today I had too much free time on my hands and didn’t know what to do with it so I picked up my Asus R2H and installed Mac OS X 10.4.7 on it (yes you read it
right). After some try-and-errors I finally managed to install it. Errors during installation were caused by my bad installation DVD. After replacing it the installation went very smooth. The installation process took about 45 minutes. The installation is not designed for 800 x 480 resolution, so you cannot se back and next buttons.
OS boot takes about 1min and 10 sec. UI is pretty slow, but it is not that annoying. This is most annoying Screen calibration is off, Most of the devices don’t work except Bluetooth and LAN. Will try to find as many drivers I can.
Not just the email he had sent us some pictures too.
