Yet another player is off the shelves — a 7 inch Astone UMPC was just spotted in stores, selling for Php19,500.
The ultra-portable laptop was displayed side by side with an Asus Eee PC 701 in an Octagon store at Mall of Asia.
The CPU is a Via C7-M which could be between 1.5 – 2.0 GHz. Default 1 GB memory, a 30GB hard disk drive, a built-in 1.3MP webcam, and WiFi. No pre-installed OS though.
With specs much better than that of Asus in almost all aspect (esp. that 30GB HDD), Astone may be on the way to a big hit.
