Kohjinsha SH6KB04A

As you all know Kohjinsha are due to release their SA1 replacement, and most websites have the new device listed as the K600. My sources tell me this is incorrect and the new unit will actually be called the Kohjinsha SH6KB04A. Also the device spec being listed on these websites is also incorrect, and I can reveal the following.

Model: SH6KB04A
CPU: 800MHz Intel
RAM: 512MB (upgradeable to 1GB)
Screen: 800 x 480 7" Touch Screen
OS: Microsoft Vista Home Basic
Keyboard: Japanese
Other: Built-in Webcam, USB Ports, WiFi, Bluetooth, NIC, VGA Out and SD

The above information will be updated as soon as I recieve the official press release, but this new device looks to be a winner, and if the expected price of $799 USD is correct, and if this model has the correct FCC and CE certification, then this could put Kohjinsha firmly in the global UMPC market place.
