ViewSonic VPC08 hands-on

Our friends at Cloned in China managed to get their hands on the ViewSonic VPC08 which was released sometime last year, and this MID/cellphone hybrid is just not something you would want if everything else in your gadget collection is thin and slim. Underneath the hood, you will find an Intel Atom Z500 800MHz processor, alongside a MTK 6235 chipset that caters for the phone system. Apart from that, your eyes will be treated to a 4.3″ display at 800 × 480 resolution for Windows XP purposes, and a 2″ 240 × 320 resolution display meant for the phone system. Internal storage is provided via an 8GB SSD, while you get Wi-Fi, a 2-megapixel camera and EV-DO 3G radio support. Would you fork out $700 for something like this? It seems to us as though it is occupying no man’s land, and we hope to see future iterations that are sleeker if it were to move more units in the market.
