The new portable computer will be tiny, at least if Intel and Microsoft are right about the Ultra Moblile PC (UMPC).  While it may bear a resemblance to a supersized PSP, it knows a few more tricks, and XYZ Computing can tell you about them.

"Simply put, the ultramobile PC (UMPC) is a tablet computer which will run a modified version of

Windows XP Tablet edition and is powered by an Intel processor. The UMBC is smaller than current

tablets, mainly due to the use of a 7" display, and is expected to reach production at a weight

under two pounds. With Intel and Microsoft jointly manning the helm, a few partner computers have

gotten involved to brand the product and sell it. The current partners are Asus, Founder, and

Samsung."
