While tablets have been stealing much of the portable computer as of late, we needn’t forget the seemingly failed UMPC form factor from yesteryear.Eking E5 UMPC brings tilting, sliding 5-inch display…..

It’s been awhile, eh Eking? The elusive handheld maker is storming back onto the scene today with an all new UMPC, despite that fact that UMPCs have been largely left behind and covered up by this new “tablet craze.” All that aside, the E5 is definitely one of the more delightful units that we’ve seen, and we can’t help think of HTC’s Advantage when it’s opened up as shown above.

Specs wise, this guy is boasting a 5-inch WSVGA (1,024 x 600) Sharp-sourced display that tilts and slides back, and an Intel Atom Z515 (1.2GHz) is powering things under the hood. There’a also 1GB of DDR2 memory, a 16GB SSD, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, inbuilt 3G connectivity, a GPS module, 3 megapixel camera and a 2,600mAh battery that lasts for an undisclosed amount of time.

Several companies came out with UMPCs including Archos, Panasonic, Gigabyte and more but none of these devices really managed to take off. Sure, the idea of having a fully featured computer in such a small package was cool but users struggled to find a use for them. Running operating systems like Windows XP and Vista, UMPCs weren’t exactly the most touch friendly devices out there and did not provide a very user friendly experience.

However, just because some rotten eggs were found in the pack doesn’t mean they will spoil the party. In fact, Eking has come forth to announce that they are still playing the UMPC tune and will break into the industry with their latest offering, the E5.

Eking’s also going the generous route and tossing in a load of accessories, but given the nearly $800 price tag for those who choose to import, we can understand why. Hit the links below for a few more looks, but don’t expect it to ship outside of China anytime soon.
