Blogging Beijing: Intel UMPC Prototype
During IDF Beijing, I was hanging out in the Crowne Plaza restaurant with Bryan Rhoads, an Intel Internet Strategist and we met Mark Parker, Chief Evangelist, from the Ultra Mobility Group. He had a prototype UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) with him and showed us how it works. It’s the Menlow platform with Silverthorn, Poulsbo inside and a bunch of other ultra geeky code names.
Mark told us that the prototype is one of two in the world and it’s the first time it’s been seen widely. In the video, Mark notes that it’ll run Linux and potentially OSX. Touchscreen, nice form factor, the whole deal.
Disclosure: Textura Design consults with Intel and I’m in Beijing supporting their blog project.
