Computers, Mobile phones

Still, the big announcement is that it’s available from today, exclusive to Orange in the UK, Telefonica in Spain and TIM in Italy.

Need a refresher on the specs? Sure, I’m only happy to oblige, as this is one hot piece of UMPC ass. With HSDPA internet connectivity, the 7″ tilting touchscreen model features Microsoft’s new Origami Experience 2.0, which offers easy access to content with one-touch buttons for all those important applications. Similar in style is the SnapVUE technology, which shows all those same applications’ information without actually booting the device up – saving a heck of a lot of time and battery life.
