The PsiXpda UMPC has a sliding, tilting 4.8-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, full QWERTY keyboard, and a webcam. The UMPC measures 74 x 84 x 25 mm and weighs 430g.

The UMPC is powered by an Intel Atom Z510 1.1GHz processor, runs the Windows XP OS,  and comes with 1GB of RAM and 16 GB SSD drive.

The 3G-capable PsiXpda UMPC offers WiFi with specifications of 802.11 b / g, Bluetooth 2.0, and three wireless options: WCDMA, EVDO, or TD-SCDMA.

The UMPC comes with an 1840 mAh battery and a runtime of two to four hours.

The PsiXpda UMPC will be available at a price of £500 or Rs 38,500.

Yesterday, Fujitsu had launched its Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 UMPC that comes with multi-touch technology. In comparison to the PsiXpda UMPC, the Fujitu LifeBook UH900 UMPC seems to have better specifications. It has a 5.6-inch sunlight readable display and comes with 62GB SSD drive.

It also runs the Windows 7 Premium operating system. The Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 packs dedicated buttons to control resolution, programs, and page up down.

The Fujitsu UMPC supports all windows-based pages and allows users to edit and view presentations, word docs, spreadsheets, fill forms, and view flash animations.

But, for its price of £500, the PsiXpda UMPC seems to be a decent buy.

umpcportal has said that the PsiXpda UMPC will be launched next week in Europe.

There is, however, no information about when the Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 UMPC will be launched and the price at which it will be launched.
