While the Netbook industry is heading for larger screen sizes, Kohjinsha seems to be interested in a different trend. Known for making low-cost convertible tablets with 7- to 9-inch screen sizes, the Japanese maker's latest model is a notebook with a tiny 4.8-inch touch screen.
Running on an off-roadmap Intel Atom N510 1.1GHz processor, the Kohjinsha PM series targets users who demand a full Windows operating system literally in the palm of their hands. The 12-ounce minilaptop is almost pocket-size, with a footprint of about 6.2 inches by 3.7 inches by less than an inch, which is about the size of a paperback novel. Other specifications include:
Intel Atom N510 1.1GHz processor
4.8-inch, 1,024x600-pixel resolution touch screen
802.11n and Bluetooth
MicroSD card reader
Windows XP Home edition
This model is currently on preorder at the Geek Stuf 4 U Web site for $825.13, which is pretty hefty for a Netbook but cheaper than the , another touch-screen Netbook.
