My hat’s off to this Vietnamese forum. One of their members managed to grab a hold of Fujitsu’s upcoming Lifebook U2010 and fully investigate it! We now know that the U2010 will sport an Atom CPU (either at 1.6 or 1.8 GHz), a 5.6″ 1024×768 display, 1 GB of RAM, an 80 GB Hard Drive, a 3G Radio, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

Shenzhen has launched an adorable PMP called the EM-2811 (or the Latte ICE). The Latte Ice has 1-4GB of storage, a miniSD slot, a 2.8 inch QVGA screen, FM radio, voice support, AVI/MPEG video playback, a built-in speaker, Tetris, a battery life of 4 hours for video and 8 hours for audio, and a nice $70 starting price! Despite having somewhat average specs, the Latte ICE has a nice look to it. I certainly hope it gets the attention it deserves!
