Yesterday I was asking myself about the future of UMPCs and Tablet PCs and Today I got the answer in the shape of this news from SlashGear. The future of UMPC is guaranteed because we have Sony working for this market. In fact, if somebody can claim to be the first to explore the possibilities in this market, the first in create a UMPC and the first to have made one with enough power to move decently any OS (including Vista), That's Sony!
While the outside remains unchanged, inside the compact casing it’s a different matter. For the first time the UX range supports 64-bit CPUs, with Sony choosing Intel’s U2200 and U2100 Core 2 Solo processors (running at 1.20GHz and 1.06GHz respectively). There’s also a 32-bit Celeron M523 if you’re scared of all this 64-bit excitement, and the option to swap out the now-looking-a-bit-weedy 40GB hard-drive for a 64GB SSD.
