Kinpo, a Taiwan-based electronics maker, has recently released a video of an Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) sporting our favorite OS, Android. The display, arguably one of the most important aspects of a UMPC, measures in at 7-inches and 800ร—480 pixels. In terms of processor, the Thin Client packs a ‘Freescale i.MX51′. Although not exactly a Core 2 Duo, this processor should run Android just fine. The UMPC is creatively named the Thin Client and comes a week after Acer confirm they will start offering Android based netbooks in Q3 of this year.

It makes sense to put a more โ€˜mobileโ€™ operating systems onto a typical X86 processor device. Although the compatibility of something such as Android is far less than that of Windows and arguably the support isnโ€™t there either, Android would offer better battery life and ease of access to the primary functions that a UMPC device requires. Check the video of the Kinpo at Computex out after the jump.
