Hardware in the future - increasing the battery life

, posted: 22-Mar-2006 10:35

Yesterday I noted that there were hardware changes that would increase the battery life of devices such as the UMPC, and this morning, I saw a link on Craigs blog to an article on geekzone about exactly what I had in mind...

Solid state disks.  These should dramatically improve battery life in mobile devices - and in the UMPC's in particular.

I suspect we'll see these in the second generation devices - which should start appearing in the Windows Vista timeframe.  Availability now + six(ish) months for integration and testing = firmly a H2 feature.
