Well, I am not sure whether this should be UMPC or tablet PC. Actually, it should be something in between. However, pocketables.net got a review of this baby which you really have to check it out.

Brief spec:

CPU: Intel Atom Z520 Silverthorne 1.33GHz (single-core, hyper-threading)
Chipset: Intel SCH US15W (Poulsbo)
RAM: 2GB DDR2-533 (1GB standard, upgradeable)
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Hard drive: 60GB
Display: 7” swivel touch-screen (1024 x 600)
Wireless: 802.11b/g, [Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, GPS]*, 1seg tuner
Size: 7.44" x 6.10" x 1.00"-1.30"
Weight: 1.76 lbs.
Colors: Black or white
Price: around $1,000 [this is not Netbook indeed]
*[optional]

It's smaller than Eee PC, but much more interesting since its screen resolution is quite large and more importantly, it's a swivel screen!! I do hope it will ink as good as Fujitsu P16xx or as same as Samsung Q1--that should be alright.

According to Jenn in the review's comment

Inking

Inking on the SC3 in portrait and landscape slate mode is actually pretty good. The display is a passive touchscreen, but it's not overly sensitive. It responds to stylus taps and fingernails immediately but will only register fingertaps when done deliberately.

Handwriting recognition through the Tablet PC Input Panel is great. I'm not an inker, so writing on the screen feels unnatural to me. I know there isn't exactly a "right" way to ink, but I'm pretty sure seasoned tablet folk would notice how awkward I am. Even so, the SC3 recognized every single word I wrote.

Writing directly on the entire screen through Windows Journal is not as great, but still quite good. The screen seems able to withstand light palm touches; vectoring is only an issue with heavy palms and when that sharpish bone right above the wrist taps it.
