iWatch Q839 mini VAIO P clone resurfaces as newly launched 3GNET MI13

Remember that miniature VAIO P clone we saw several weeks ago from Chinese manufacturer iWatch? The diminutive UMPC has resurfaced as what appears to be an identical rebranded version from 3GNET at a launch event in Shenzhen. Sporting virtually identical specifications as the iWatch original, the MI13 sports a 5-inch WVGA screen, a 1.1GHz Atom Z510 CPU, 512MB or 1GB of RAM, a 16GB HDD or 32GB SSD, WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth, and an ever so slightly larger 3.7V, 1850mAh li-on battery. The device measures 6.9 x 3.35 x 1 inches (WxHxD) and weighs around 16 ounces. The original version ran Windows XP, and I presume this will do the same; in the photos of the desktop it seems to have an Android-esque interface, but I'm uncertain whether this is just a desktop UI or something else.

From these photos, the device looks better than the original renderings from iWatch. But the underpowered hardware is still a disappointment, especially when compared to other UMPCs such as the Viliv N5. The 3GNET MI13 is available in China now for 4000RMB, which works out to around US$590. The company mentioned at the launch event it hopes to offer the device internationally in the coming months. You can see more new photos of the UMPC after the break.
