CES 2011 introduced the 5 inch OCS1 Tiny Computer, the smallest ever portable device to consumers.
The device offers Windows 7, web browsing, gaming, MMORPG and 3D, productivity, says its creators OCOSMOS, at the Consumer Electronics Show which took place in Las Vegas last week.

“Users will love the TC’s capabilities, ease of use, power, and mobility,” predicts its Korean makers.  

Powered by Intel’s next generation ‘Oak Trail’ Atom platform (1.5GHz), the “handheld mobile device with the power of a PC” contains a user interface, the ‘OMOS Key,’ that enhances the functionality of tasks normally performed on a conventional laptop or PC.
 
Considering its small proportions, the OCS1 provides a multitude of specs and could materialise as a cheaper, mini alternative to the new iPad 2, includes 5.0-Inch TFT  touch screen (1024 x 600 pix), QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, WiMax, detachable HSDPA, gyroscope, GPS, 1GB of RAM installed (upgradeable to 2GB) and USB 2.0 H.

This is on top of 64GB storage, front and rear cameras (which is also said to be a feature on Apple’s up and coming iPad 2), and microSD memory card slots (another possible feature of the iPad 2).

For gaming enthusiasts, it also offers right to left keys.

 

“OCS1 is the world’s first TC that provides the same experience of playing online games as on a PC,” said Eu-jin Oh, President of OCOSMOS.

“The TC is a revolution in mobile culture,” says OCOSMOS General Manager, Marketing, Jay-Hun Kim.

“With its powerful Intel Atom processor, the OCS1 is positioned to win against other portable gaming consoles on the market, not to mention PCs, and users will find fast 2D and 3D image editing compelling.”

Said to be “priced competitively” compared to the iPad, the OCS1 TC will be available to Australian consumers in the second half of 2011.

The fledgling brand have said have said they will work with mobile operators and major online and offline distributors for the device, although a distributor for Australia has yet to be confirmed.
