The first UMPC from smartphone maker HTC will be unveiled in the first half of 2007. The machine is codenamed Athena, it runs Windows Mobile and features a Marvel 624MHz processor.

Some more features:
a 5-inch VGA screen; a separate QWERTY keyboard which can combine with the screen to become a mini notebook PC; a built-in 3-megapixel phone camera with an 8GB hard disk drive; support for Wi-Fi, 3G, HSDPA (high-speed downlink packet access), Bluetooth and GPS (global positioning system), the sources pointed out. As Windows XP Tablet PC Edition and 7-inch screens are mainstream specifications for UMPC models, Athena is different in these two respects, the sources noted.
