The first versions of the Ultra Mobile PC were high and hype and short on reality, but Intel at its Intel Developer Forum is standing firm behind the new device category.
The chip maker not only unveiled a 2007 update, it is also pulling forward its 2008 update by about 6 months.
The new models will be running Windows Vista and offer slightly better energy efficiency, but consumers would be wise to wait for at least the 2008 upgrade. That gets them a 45nm processor that will probably allow for smaller devices and a more decent battery life.
