More official information has been made available about the DualCor cPC, a new computing device that will run both Windows XP Tablet PC Edition and Windows Mobile. Dave Ciccone, DualCor Director of Strategic Alliances, sent me and other other DualCor advisors some interesting details. I'm a bit late getting this post online because I'm off hosting a security conference, but here's the highlights:

  • Cost: $1999
  • It will be sold at authorized reseller in the US, and in certain other countries (TBA)
  • It will ship in the next 90 days
  • It will ship with a Compact Flash WiFi card included in the package
  • For phone use, you can add a CF card or a USB device
  • Digital Ink is supported and OneNote works
  • Video can be portrait or landscape oriented
  • Video resolution on the external VGA port/device is spec'ed up to 2048x1536, and it's been tested as high as 1600x1200
  • The syncing capabilities between Windows XP and Windows mobile is a proprietary piece of software just for this device
  • Accessories will be announced soon, and DualCor is open to suggestions - leave a comment here or email if you have one and I will see it is passed along. Instead of a formal docking station, there will be a "picture stand" and a "desk stand"
  • It has a 1.8-inch, 30GB hard drive. Windows XP boot from that, and the Windows Mobile software boots from the ROM
  • It's designed to run applications developed on the Microsoft SDK for Windows Mobile and Windows XP Tablet PC applications

I'm also looking forward to it. The potential is there for this device to replace my laptop for much use. My focus is presentations, note taking, email and IM, and (of course) blogging. Also some remote desktop type of use. The cPC has the horsepower to replace my laptop and may just allow me to migrate from one use case and method to another (home, car, office, on travel). It's another exciting time for computing growth.

the dual cor cpc can be considered as the most powerful handtop at the moment. however, considering that it has 2 os, i think it can be an almost perfect masterpiece if it will be further configured into a dual display, convertible pda phone pc with 2 cmos and 1-5 mega pixel cameras with suretype keyboard and a full qwerty keyboard,integrated simcard slot and wireless connectivities. usages at closed position, primary - camera phone with video calling, secondary - use as pda and third use as as umpc with options of input devices-suretype keyboard or handwriting recognition. usages at open position, primary as umpc, secondary as phone with video calling. at converted position primarily as tablet pc then as pda
