Looks as though the Flybook V5 will be making its way to the U.S. after gaining popularity in the European market. The V5 sports a 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV U7600 processor, 4GB of memory, 80GB hard drive and runs Windows Vista Business as the OS.

The V5 has an 8.9-inch touchscreen that is responsive enough to use your fingers for navigating. It also will include HSDPA wireless connectivity, a 1.3-Megapixel web cam and be available in a variety of colors.

European users had noted that the Tablet PC suffered from a dim LCD, but supposedly this issue has been addressed for the North American release, with some claiming the screen can be read in sunlight now. Hopefully the price will be adjusted too.

The Flybook V5 will be available for $2,900. That is an awful steep price for a tiny tablet. If Flybook wants to be taken seriously as a competitor, I recommend dropping the price. I mean there are a lot of subnotebooks, UMPCs and other tablets on the market with similar features and a much cheaper price tag.
