They're now taking pre-orders for the UMPC from their website. It looks very nice - its the same design as the screen emulator.
I ordered the model with a 40 Gig hard drive and 512 Mb RAM, although I'm hoping to get it bumped up to 1 Gig if I can.
So I've ordered and prepaid, and Hugo tells me that I'm going to be one of 300 people world wide included in the first shipment. Nice.
I'll post my experiences here when it arrives in a few weeks.

cool. looking forward to a pros-cons matrix in comparing VGA PocketPC and UMPC. I probably will continue using WM2003 Smartphone2 (or WM5 Smartphone5, or N80 for 3G) and have VGA Pocket PC OR UMPC for WiFi, Internet, Media, all round usage that doesn't require extensive keyboard typing. I like the sound of UMPC, but at the moment they seems a bit too big, i like OQO 01+ but Mauricio did pointed out that it gets very hot and tiny screen (although I think it's pretty alright) Another thing with UMPC EO, is that you can use it as secondary screen? I'm very keen on that, wonder how that works?
