iWatch Q839 UMPC is like a miniature VAIO P with WinXP, 3G, and WiMAX

Ever wish that the venerable Sony VAIO P was even smaller and be truly pocketable? Chinese manufacturer iWatch may have what you're looking for with its new iWatch Q839 UMPC. The miniature laptop/handtop, with its 5-inch WVGA touch screen, doesn't quite match the original's hardware, running Windows XP with the choice of either a 1.1GHz Atom Z510 or 1.2GHz Z515, 512MB/1GB of RAM, and a 16/32GB SSD. But it compares favorably with WiFi, WiMAX, 3G, and Bluetooth connectivity and has a similar 2-3 hour battery life from the 3.7V, 1800mAh li-on unit. The Q839 measures 6.95 x 3.46 x 1 inches (WxHxD) and weighs only 13 ounces. Check out more images after the break.

Following the Q839, iWatch also announced the Q838, a UMPC with identical specs but in a slider form factor. Looking at the image below, some of you may recognize the design and agree with me that it appears to be a rebranded EKING S515 / PsiXpda UMPC / DigiCube Z8. Both devices are now available in China for around $575.
