Fujitsu U2010 Atom-based UMPC will cost $1,300


Remember the original promise of the UMPC? We were told they’d be affordable, like in the $500 range. Then Intel’s Atom chipset was announced and we were told that it, too, would be affordable.

Well, here comes one from Fujitsu for just shy of $1,300, available in Taiwan this July.

It’s called the U2010. You’ll get a 5.6-inch rotating screen (I’d guess it’ll be a touchscreen, too), six-row QWERTY keyboard, and Intel’s new — ahem — affordable Atom processor. It’ll also have a built-in 3.5G data connection and a GPS chip.
