600 MHz Kohjinsha SH6: good price vs. performance trade


Whitekohjinshash6_2Tablet PC Review has an in-depth look at the relatively low priced Kohjinsha SH6 with 600 MHz CPU. For $770, the reviewer got a solid little performer. Is it me or are the Kohji’s seeming to be working well with the A100 and A110 processors when compared with other devices using the same chipset? Honestly, I was surprised and impressed by Michael Connick’s Kohji, but he did have the RAM upgraded to 2 GB. No such upgrade at Tablet PC Review: 1 GB seemed to work well unless there were numerous applications open; numerous being ten. Hmm… if I read one more positive review on these guys, I just might have to get some playtime of my own with one. Meanwhile, you can do what I do: live vicariously through the reviews. ;)



FWIW, I had a white SH6 that I upgraded to 2GB RAM running Vista Home Premium until a week ago….

All in all, a very nice little lappy and good value for the $’s….not sure why I sold it now that I think about it…. ;-)

Didn’t do inking a lot on it, but what I did worked quite well….

Display is very bright and sharp, keyboard is still usable size for touch-typing, and found performance with Vista OK but I tweaked it heavily….build quality is pretty good too…




vectoring on a 5.6″ screen? either…

1. Steve has no idea what he’s doing (wouldnt surprise me)

2. he is purposefully trying to create vectors in VERY unrealistic usage situations trying to test the rejection technology

no matter what, he is wrong. i would be embarrassed to admit i vector on a 5.6″ screen, i dont even have problems on a 7″ screen. but once you get larger than that the rejection technology starts to become very important.


I was thinking of the Fujitsu U810 for an inking device. Just heard from SteveNYC, who’s a frequent poster on UMPC Portal, that he was having vectoring issues with it. Very disappointing since the U810 has a hard touch screen with palm rejection. He said the inking experience was a lot different than the P1610.

So that’s off the list. Getting closer to either a Vye S37 w/ USA keyboard, Sony TZ, or a 12″ convertible.

I hear you Aaron and I’ll be the first to admit the inking experience on the Q1 series is less than optimal. I’ve got it working well on a daily basis because I’m comfortable using the bezel to rest my wrist. Looking at the Kohji’s I think I’d have the same inking experience because they too have a wide screen bezel. The only concern I have is that they have more controls and buttons on the bezel, so I’d have to try the inking first…

That was my initial thought as well but they say the inking experience is terrible on these things since it uses the “soft touch” ala the Samsung Q1 as opposed to the Asus R2H.

If it had a decent inking experience, I would probably jump on board as well.
