FIC Unveils Ultra-Mobile PC at Computex 2007
Low Voltage VIA C7-M Processor Powers New Device
Taipei, Taiwan, June 5 – First International Computer, a world leader in the design and production of electronic devices, today unveiled the CE260 Ultra-Mobile PC. Designed for ultimate portability, the latest FIC creation offers the functionality and ease-of-use of a full-sized computer in a smaller, light weight platform.
Employing a VIA C7-M processor, 7” WVGA touch screen, 1.8” hard disk drive and 80-key qwerty keyboard, the CE260 allows mobile users to communicate via Ethernet, 802.11b/g or Bluetooth wireless, display presentation through its DVI port and perform general computing tasks on a 5-hour lithium-ion battery.
“The unrivaled portability and functionality of our new UMPC makes small screen PDA devices seem hopelessly obsolete,” states John Villejo, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for FIC. “Users searching beyond cumbersome laptops will also find familiarity with the ergonomics of the CE260 but with the added benefit of extreme mobility.”
Weighing a mere 0.97Kg and measuring 23cm in length, the new UMPC also offers the flexibility to include a detachable clock/calendar, Skype phone, DVB-T TV Tuner or GPS module.
