The web has been buzzing recently with reports of the HTC Athena, a UMPC-like device that will run Windows Mobile. More recently, Tatung has been demonstrating a similar model.

Very little is known about this device, aside from the fact that it will apparently be larger than a typical Pocket PC, but still run Windows Mobile.
Tatung is calling this device a UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC), but that’s the name Microsoft has given to a specific class of computers that use Windows XP as an operating system, while images of this model taken at Computex Taipei 2006 clearly show that this upcoming model does not.
Some people are expecting Tatung to formally announce this device as the CES tradeshow next month.
