by Reads (9,316)

Some pictures and specifications of what is supposedly going to be a very small portable computer from Sony have emerged on the Web.

This will be one of a new class of portable computers called Ultra Mobile PCs. This means it will run a special version of Windows XP that includes features tailored for small devices with touchscreens

Unlike the other UMPCs that have been announced so far, this computer will supposedly include a built-in keyboard. This can be hidden behind the 7-inch screen.

For wireless networking, this device will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and some form of 3G cellular support.

It will also include two cameras and a biometric fingerprint sensor.

It is not known at this time what this UMPC will cost or when it will be available.
