The Flybook is one sexy little connected beast!

May 30, 2005

I’ve just seen the sexiest, most connected little notebook (3G/WiFi/GPRS/Bluetooth) called a Flybook. It’s manufactured by Dialogue and is a full featured notebook that runs Windows XP, but also utilises tablet PC features.

It has built in 3G (UMTS) giving it mobile voice & data functionality that can make and recieve voice calls using the installed BVRP software.

It is a very well made & solid feeling notebook considering it is around 1Kg in weight and has the following specs:

  • Processor  – Transmeta Crusoe TM-5800, clock rate:1GHz
  • Graphic Chipset  – ATi Radeon Mobolity – 16MB VRAM – Support VGA-out and Video-out
  • Main Memory  – 512MB DDR (to 1.5Gb)
  • Display  – 8.9" wide-view 16:9 display
  • Touch Panel overlaid for full screen touch control
  • PC Card Interface  – Support PCMCIA Cardbus Type-I/III
  • Hard Disk  – 2.5" Ultra DMA 66/100; 40 GB  (to 100Gb)
  • Bluetooth Version 1.1
  • Built-in GPRS/UMTS
  • Wireless LAN(WiFi)  – 802.11b
  • Built-in Modem (56K) (RJ-11)
  • Built-in LAN (10/100Mbps) (RJ-45)
  • Audio  – AC 97; built-in two speakers (stereo)
  • Keyboard  – 80-key standard keyboard
  • Battery  – 3-cell Li-Ion rechargeable battery
  • Operating System  – Microsoft® Windows® XP Home or Professional Edition
  • Dimensions:235 x 155 x 31 (mm)
  • Weight around 1230g
  • External Power  – 100~240V / 50-60 Hz

Supposedly there is a optional CD/DVD burner too.

It’s recommend retail in Australia will be AUS$3400 and anything that comes in red wins my vote!
