New Handheld Computer from IMOVIO

The IMOVIO is a portable computer designed to be always-ready for the internet and fit easily in your hand.

Measuring a mere 3.7″x 2.5″ x .6″, the iKit is clearly built with miniature sized specs. There is only 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM, although with the help of an SD card one can upgrade the available memory to 8GB. The processor is a tiny Marvell PXA270 312MHz and the screen is 2.8″ QVGA.

The keyboard, however, is not so miniature, offering full QWERTY functionality.

The connectivity is somewhere inbetween, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but no built in 3G connectivity. Without a cell phone or a router you’re stuck.

For features, the IMOVIO iKit comes with an optional integrated webcam, as well as software for surfing, chatting, and playing back media. However, the battery is only rated to last 3 hours in general use, so you won’t be able to see too many movies anyway.

The iKit is expected to go on sale for roughly $172.
