Shenzhen HT560 Revealed Pictures, Details on HT560 UMPC Leaked, Runs XP, 5-inch screen

Chinese tech company Shenzhen has let loose more details on the upcoming
HT560 MID, which likely won't beย availableย in the West anytime soon
but should be a big hit in China. The MID/UMPC comes equipped with a
wide 5.6-inch screen but unfortunately comes running Windows XP.
In addition to its 5.6 screen, the HT560 will come equipped with a
speedy VIA c7 processor with a clockspeed of 1.0GHz, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB
SSD drive (a huge 32GB SSD drive is optio
nal), GPS, and a few USB ports and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Not a bad MID
by any means, but the inclusion of a eight-year-old operating system is
a bit odd. Expect a few users to install a Linux distro on it, or maybe
even Chrome.
The downside is that you can only order these in a batch of 10 right now
from a third-party website, and they likely won't be localized for the
West. The price hasn't beenย announced, but this isย definitelyย a cool
unit. I wouldn't mind seeing Lenovo or somebody picking this unit up and
rebranding it and selling it in the US and Europe as one of theirs. But,
unless that happens, any interested users need to start
learningย Mandarinย and finding 9 friends.
