Just when we thought the Viliv N5 would be crowned king of the clamshell MIDs and the lowly UMID BZ would be sentenced to a life of servitude, an all-white special edition of the BZ appears with specs that give the N5 some serious competition.
Dubbed the UMID mbook SE, the device one-ups the original BZ with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 802.11n. Carried over from the older unit are the 32GB SSD and Windows XP Home operating system, though the full list of specifications (below) is careful note that "Windows 7 Driver Support" is included.
There mbook SE doesn't appear on UMID's website yet, but an online retailer in Korea is already selling the device for 698,000 SKW, which works out to about $574. Availability outside of Korea is currently unknown.
