thcrw739 aims for below the belt. The Infinity is Canadian with technical backing in Korea, it is not Chinese.

cmonex, like I say, you'll be able to get hold an Infinity for less than that. Stay tuned for some formal US pricing announcements here on HPC:Factor soon!

The "real" product looks much better than the renderings you are looking at

PS. Today 90% + of all IT products are manufactured in China and same goes for any other product.
The miPC definitely falls in the 10%

But there's a catch. Actually two. Remember the Raon Vega's problem of dongle-enabled WIfi and BT? Well it seems the Infinity has the same issue. I think I remember why it fell of the bottom of the list now! [Checking on the product website doesn't show any indication of dongles though. I wonder if they have changed the design. Double-check before you order!] The second issue is the low screen resolution of 480x272 which is not really good enough for any sort of un-optimised Internet browsing.

Anybody know anything about these issues?

Regards, Don

1. The USB WIFI is scrapped because it is a "scrapy" solution for mr battery - Replaced by SDIO WIFI 802.11N
2. The 480x272 resolution is "acceptable" although I agree that websites that are not optimized for ppc are somewhat less fun to navigate - Unofficially I can tell you that I heard something about the current TFT beeing swaped for a "nicer" TFT 800X480

Thanks for the update.

There is a concern that "nicer" will drag along a significant reduction in absolute displayed font size even with a 7 inch screen. However, there's no way to make a trade-off judgment without actual experience.

Hey! looking closely at the scanned ad, does it say "Npop e-mail" ??

I wonder what version they're using ... and why they're not using nPOPuk.

Edit: OK, I watched the shockwave flash thingy on their web site ... it says nPOP 1.0.8.

oh and screen resolution is 480x272 or similar. for some reason i was thinking 800x480
They were working for a little while on beefing up the screen real-estate for this release, however have shelved a larger screen model for future R&D. They elected to integrate the WiFi tranceiver instead of tackling the screen at this stage.

I have an 8GB Zen infront of me here, and that only has a 320x240 screen. Creative seem to think that is a winner, so I am sure that there are going to be some takers for the smaller screen and additional compactness that the 480x270 offers.

that's good, next model with the large resolution and possibly with integrated keyboard and ARM could be a killer with such an excellent software suite preinstalled.

I 100% agree. If they can get that micro-usb BT controller on the motherboard as well (having the USB slot to use while BTing would be beneficial), then they would be laughing!

I was offered the development prototype to have a play with, but sadly nothing came of it
