Are you ready for an “ultramobile lifestyle PC?”

Posted by David Hunter at 11:34 PM ET.


Rob Bushway is attending the Partner briefing hosted by Microsoft, a meeting where MS is sharing information about upcoming products in the Mobile PC (and Tablet PC) arena with OEM partners and developers. There is exciting news coming out of this meeting about “Mobile Lifestyle PCs” that will be pen enabled, have long battery life, and cost around $500.

He points to Rob Bushway’s blog which has the spec for this concept:

The ideal Lifestyle Ultra-Mobile PCs will be

- wearable
- all day battery life (12 hr on-time)
- $500 msrp
- always on
- connection through 3G
- instant use
- 10”
- Pen based
- full windows based

There’s more in succeeding posts and from Dennis Rice. Engadget is on the case too.

It sounds a little like an Intel “handtop” and I guess I’ll have to see it to believe it. As usual, the hardest part is probably the battery life.
