CES 2008 will be the platform where the Noahpad UMPC is paraded, and the device has been dubbed "classmate, roommate, and travelmate". It is powered by Ubuntu 7.10 by default, but has more than enough firepower to run Windows XP thanks to its 1GHz VIA C7 Eden processor (CX700 chipset). Other hardware specifications include a 30GB hard drive, 512MB RAM, a 7" LED backlit display and a QWERTY keyboard. According to E-Lead, the Noahpad's manufacturer, it will feature a yet-unknown input technology that claims to be revolutionary, but I will take that claim with a pinch of salt. While it might be called the Noahpad, you won't find any waterproof capability on this little UMPC.
