First Intel Centrino Atom Device – June 2008

Sharp Willcom D4 The first of the ultra-small computers based on Intel’s Centrino Atom platform is scheduled to arrive in June of 2008.

The 5-inch Sharp Willcom D4, which functions as a cell phone, in addition to being a touchscreen/Tablet convertible with a 64-key sliding keyboard, was announced yesterday by Sharp.

It’s powered by the Intel Atom Z520 (1.33GHz) and the Intel US15W system hub. It has a high-resolution LED-backlit display, 1024×600, as well as a 1.8-inch 40GB mechanical drive. While it’s sold as a cell phone ($400 USD with two year plan), it’s obviously a lot more than a cell phone (and it’s not going to be going into your pocket anytime soon).
