GeCube is displaying its small black Genie PC at CeBIT which is clearly built to rival the mighty and hugely successful ASUS Eee PC.

The Genie weights in at just 950 grams (30 grams heavier than the Eee) and measures 230 x 146 x 33mm making it similar in size and weight to the Eee. It will come with a built-in 2200mAh LI-ion battery which offers up to 3.5 hours of battery life. It has built-in USB 2.0 interface with 10/100 Ethernet and appears as if it will be bundled with 802.11b/g wireless and Bluetooth dongle.

No surprises here, it includes Linux on an unspecified X86 CPU which we hope to learn more about soon. The screen is capable of an 800 x 480 resolution and it appears as if it includes no less than two built-in web cameras.




We will visit GeCube when they are back in Taiwan to learn more about this interesting device. We will try and steal one while they are not looking!
