Mobinnova élan smartbook gets hardware & software video tour

Mobinnova élan smartbookMobinnova announced its 8.9-inch élan smartbook using Nvidia’s Tegra platform back at Computex. The company claimed that the élan offers 5-10 hours of 720p HD video playback in a package weighing just 836g and measuring 20.5mm in thickness. Netbook News managed to spend some time with the smartbook and shot a couple of videos, one covering the hardware aspect and the other a software walkthrough.

The Mobinnova élan is a fanless device and as it uses an ARM-based chip, it has integrated Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity. It also has a hinged port panel on the back side which should keep the dust out of the sockets. The user interface has been developed by Nvidia, although this is unlikely to ship on the final version. It has been supplied to partners who are then making changes to tailor it to their own offering. So far there are no official details on price or availability, although a 2009 release is expected. You can check out both videos after the break.

    those devices are cool, but soooolw diversity brings complexity for the majority. w7 will fail on such devices, cuz it is designed for powerful pcs. android is better, but it’s not much different than ipad’s os. so why buy a slow, complex with little software device, when u can buy a really fast, easy to use with a ton of software one, like the ipad? apple already won.

Znam jednak rodzine, ktora kupila w owym czasie 1 hektar ziem iw Pyrach (zaplacili 20 tysiecy dolarow), za ktory dzisiaj zyja trzy pokolenia. Wartosc tez ziemi: 2 mln dolarow. 100 razy wiecej. Dzisiaj za przecietna place (1000 dol.) mozna kupic ok. 5 – 10 m kw. ziemi, czyli mniej wiecej tyle samo co wtedy. Uklony Jan M Fijor
