Vensmile iPC002 is an Ultra Thin Windows 8.1 mini PC with a 7,000 mAh Battery

Several mini PCs and sticks based on Intel Atom Z3735f/g tablet processors have been announced in the last few months, including MeegoPad T01 and MINIX NEO Z64. But iPC002 introduced to me by VISSON, is a little different, as it includes most features of a tablet with a thin form factor, and an internal battery, but the display, and adds full sized USB ports.

iPC002iPC002 specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Atom Z3735F  “Bay Trail” quad core processor @ 1.33 GHz (Bust freq: 1.83 GHz) with Intel HD graphics Gen 7 (2W TDP)
  • System Memory – 2 GB DDR3L
  • Storage – 32 GB eMMC + micro SD slot
  • Video Output – micro HDMI
  • Audio I/O – micro HDMI, 3.5mm headphone jack, and built-in microphone
  • Connectivity – 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports, 1x micro USB OTG 2.0 port
  • Misc – Volume Up/Down Key, Power Key , Home key
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A via micro USB port, 7000 mAh battery good for 3 hours of 1080p video playback.
  • Dimensions – 148 x 79 x 9.2 mm
  • Weight – 210 grams

The system only runs Windows 8.1, and I’ve been told a dual boot Windows/Linux image was in development but has been dropped because “it has many problems, and too slow”, which does not bode well for other dual boot Intel Bay Trail-T systems, or maybe the company did not want to invest resources into Linux development. A mobile app is also being developed which will let consumers use their phone as a wireless mouse, remote, and keyboard, as well as transfer files back and forth between the phone and the computer. A screen mirroring function will allow to see Windows 8.1 from your mobile device, which could make the battery a bit more useful. Intel is apparently actively involved in this project, or so I’m told. When I asked for a product page, I was provided a link to Amazon US for a product called Vensmile iPC002, but not yet for sale.

iPC002 looks exactly the same as Guleek i8 pre-sold on DealExtreme for $104, except it only comes with 16GB eMMC, and the battery has a 3,000 mAh capacity.

A reader on Liliputing suggested you could make a portable system with display by connecting the system to a 16″ USB powered LCD, so for $200 you can get some sort of portable computer with a sizable display.
