The picture's a little small, but you're looking at a Linux-based UMPC with a 2.8-inch VGA touchscreen and a WiMax hookup unveiled yesterday by Taiwan's Science and Technology Advisory Group. Dubbed MTube, it packs a 1Ghz VIA CPU and 8GB of storage in its tiny 8.5 x 8.5 x 2cm body, but not a lot of battery life—only four hours.
