S. Korea-based Daewoo Lucoms has announced its first Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), the Solo M1. This device will strongly resemble the other UMPCs that have already been introduced by companies like Samsung and TabletKiosk.

Naturally, the M1 will run the special version of Windows XP Tablet PC Edition that Microsoft has developed for this new class of devices. It will include a  low-voltage, 900 MHz Intel Celeron processor and 512 MB of RAM and a 30 MB hard drive.

Like many of its competitors, this UMPC will have a 7-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

It will also sport a 1.3 megapixel image/video camera and a cradle with additional ports, including Ethernet, USB, and S-VIDEO.

Consumers will have a choice between a GPS receiver and/or DMB TV tuner.

The Solo M1 will sell for about $1,050, but it isn’t yet known where this device will be available.

More information can be found on the Daewoo Lucoms web site (Korean).
