Word of the Medion RIM 1000 ultra-portable PC began surfacing a couple of months ago and there was even a short video of the mystery device that surfaced on YouTube.  The RIM 1000 is interesting because it has what appears to be a very usable keyboard that slides out from the device.  SlashGear has gotten their hands on the Medion device and posted a few photos of it and I must admit it’s an intriguing little PC.  It’s pretty cool that the photos show the RIM to be running Vista.  The known specs are as follows:

RIM 1000

  • CPU:   Via C7–M 1.0 GHz
  • Memory:   512 MB
  • Display:   6.5”, 800×480 (backlit)
  • Connectivity:   WiFi (b,g), Bluetooth 2.0
  • Hard drive:   1.8”, 20/30/40 GB options
  • Web cam:   VGA
  • Dimensions:   7.48” x 4.72” x 1.1”
  • Weight:   1.5 lbs.
  • I/O Ports:   VGA, docking connector
  • Battery life:  4 – 5 hours (quoted)
  1. No cellular connectivity? Or do you have to pair it with your Bluetooth phone, I wonder.

    Seems like a nice unit – if the price is right.
