FIC introduces 2.2 lbs UMPC with detachable calculator

  • Taipei TAIWAN – By now you are probably sick of all the UMPC news, but FIC has put a spin on things by announcing a UMPC with detachable modules – one of which is a calculator.  The Nanobook is designed in partnership with Via and sports a 7-inch screen and the Via 1.2 GHz C7-M processor.

    The right side of the screen has a detachable module that can sport a GPS receiver, mobile phone or even a calculator.  Unfortunately the module on the Nanobook we photographed couldn’t detach.  “It’s just a sample,” company reps whispered to us.

    The Nanobook should be available for $700 during the holiday 2007 season.
