While Windows 8 still seems to be a long way from official release, reports of upcoming devices supporting it are becoming more common – such as the Dell Latitude ST tablet. Now, a Chinese company, In Technology Group, has announced it is developing a Windows 7 smartphone that will support Windows 8 when it is released, just like the Windows 7-at-launch Dell tablet.
ITG has in the past launched two Windows phones, one that ran XP, and another, the XPPhone, that ran Windows 7. The upcoming Windows 8-ready device will be called XPPhone 2, and will be the company’s slimmest, lightest, and most energy efficient such device. ITG is calling the “smallest notebook PC in the world.”
The XPPhone 2 will feature some pretty solid hardware with a 4.3-inch display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 112GB of SSD storage space. ITG also mentioned it is considering a 2GHz offering as well. Other specs revealed include an 18 hour talk time, and 46 day standby time. The XPPhone 2 measures in at 140 x 73 x 17.5mm, and will apparently have a docking system to provide a keyboard for laptop-like form factors.
