VIA is getting stronger

And I'm going to say it one more time, the UMPC market will be dominated by VIA soon and it will keep that leadership for at least a year or even more. All depend of how long will take Intel to design something with enough power to run Vista decently in  UMPCs and still getting a good battery life. But so far... it seems to me that Intel is too busy fighting for  the MID market.

With Hewlett-Packard (HP) said to have ordered 100,000 C7-M ULV processors for its initial mini-note low-cost PC launch, (which is expected to reach 500,000 units in total in 2008) while Gigabyte Technology's new M700 series UMPC (ultra mobile PC) will also adopt VIA Technologies' CPUs, the Taiwan-based chipmaker may have a chance of recover from its long series of losses, according to industry watchers.
