What would be better than a handheld Windows XP device with a 5 inch screen? How about a cPC from DualCor Technologies that has Windows XP running on a Via 1.5 GHz processor and Windows Mobile 5.0 running on a PXA processor from Intel. The dual processor approach is very novel and provides a complete computing experience with XP yet adds all the smartphone functionality of Windows Mobile. The company claims the cPC can run for 8 hours on a single battery charge and has 1 GB of memory allocated to the Windows XP side of the device. The Windows Mobile side has 128 MB of DRAM and 1GB of flash memory! Both sides of the device share a 40 GB hard drive for permanent storage. DualCor also claims they have included Tablet PC functionality without using a digitizer, something I’d love to see. The cPC is dockable for use as a full desktop computer with all the peripherals that requires. The device is expected to be available in March for $1,500 and will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show next month. You can bet I’ll be looking for this baby.
