cPC: handheld with both Windows Mobile and Windows XP

CNET writes Start-up merges cell phone and PC into a handheld:

DualCor Technologies next month will unveil the cPC, a full-fledged handheld Windows XP computer that also comes with a built-in smart phone that runs Windows Mobile 5.0.

If you thought they somehow found a way to run both versions of Windows on a single hardware set, you'd be wrong. The cPC actually has two different chipsets and memory configurations:

The computer part of the equation consists of Windows XP Tablet operating system, a 1.5GHz C7-M processor from Via Technologies and 1GB of DDR 2 memory. The cell phone aspect of the device has Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC phone edition, a PXA communications processor from Intel, 128MB of DRAM and 1GB of flash memory.

The cPC can also be used as a regular desktop:

Users can also dock the cPC like a CPU, plugging it into an outlet and LCD screen and it will feel no different than using a regular desktop.

This marvel of engineering does have a $1500 price tag attached to it, so you better start saving your money for when it comes out in March.

This is almost too good to be true. I wonder if you can hotsync from the Windows Mobile side to the TabletPC side?!

Seems it comes with 1gig flash memory and 40gig hard drive. Wow!

I wonder... Is 128MB DRAM enough to run WindowsXP? Or do they use part of the flash memory to do that?

And it's not really missing WiFi is it? Well, I guess at that price point, if you can afford the device I guess you can probably shell out for an unlimited hi-speed wireless data plan from your cell phone carrier also.

Cut the price in half, add a slideout keyboard, keep it "pocketable," and I'd jump on one tomorrow!

Seems that windows xp will use the 1 GB of DDR 2 and not the 128 ram from the windows mobile...

Windows XP + Windows Mobile 5 with one mobile devices sounds like a dream come true for most Windows user. However, with the separate memory configuration, would it still be possible to exchange data between the two systems?

Maybe we can copy the data, in wm, to the flash memory, and then read it in windows XP with the flash appearing as a disk...

That'd be cool. Perhaps you can even run ActiveSync on the Windows XP part and use it to internally sync with the handheld portion of the device
