WiBrain l1 goes Atom

wibrain_l1.jpg

The WiBrain I1 — from its bizarre name to a design that looks like every disparate element of a usable UMPC UI was just puked up onto a prototype — was a weird device. But Beschizza, UMPC loather though he may be, has always liked them, feeling that it is one of the only UMPCs to... well, less get UMPC usability right than fail to get it disastrously wrong. It's the sort of protruding thumbs up that makes friends of press departments, let me tell you.

Anyway, the moon man MID just got an upgrade, which includes Atom, which means better battery life: your choice of 1.1GHz (Z510) and 1.33GHz (Z520) Atom processors. There's also a WWAN antenna, SD card slot, and Linux and XP versuibse with a 30GB or 60GB hard drive or a 64GB SSD.

No price or date yet, but the original WiBrain was only $699, so it'll probably hover somewhere around there.
