Hello,

Does anyone know when we can expect UMPCs' to be available here in New Zealand?

I'm quite interested in the eo UMPC v7110.

Anyone that has any information regarding availability and price, would be very helpful.

Regards,

Sten

As Mauricio pointed out. Tegatech is the only Authorised reseller for Aus/NZ. However Hugo is looking for NZ Reseller to better facilitate NZ's customers.

Anyway, while on here.. perhaps you'd be keen to look at i7210 rather than v7110 as the former has better specs. Yeah a bit more pricey but it has a proper docking station! (i'm getting i7210 soon)

Asus R2h has Celeron M, which the same reason to deter me from Samsung Q1, and v7110. i7210 has Pentium M and 1GB ram. in my opinion a better buy. Ask Hugo, and he'll agree that Pentium M is better to use.

Now, if Samsung Q1PSSD is available (at the moment, there's no such model), which has HSDPA (P) and Solid State Disk (SSD) with Pentium M and 1GB, then that may win me over to Samsung's.

The Sony offering looks quite tasty.

tasty and pricey and too tiny screen (though looks nice) and keyboard is useless and unfriendly. and thick bulky little thing.

I had a sony UX for a month here (still have to put the review up), but... As chiefie says: too small screen, keyboard is flush and not friendly. I wouldn't go there...
