While James is up earlier than normal in Vegas, I’m sitting at the Philadelphia International Airport reading about BenQ’s mobile Internet device. According to MobileWhack, we’ll get our first peek at this handheld gateway to the web at CES which is expected to have various connectivity options and a 4.8-inch touchscreen. I’m curious what the screen resolution will be like as the Wibrain I’m evaluating from Dynamism has the same sized screen with touch. Connections in the device will be WiFi and 3.5G; not sure if that’s HSDPA, but that’s my guess.
We’ll plan to sneak over to the
BenQ Intel booth in hopes of some hands-on time, impressions and pics! Just remember that the MID-type devices won’t be running a Windows variant and that they’re truly meant as companion devices that consume less power. Not saying you can’t use a MID for most of your daily needs, just trying to set expectations after the last two years of UMPC debates. Personally, I’m getting more interested in MIDs as I move away from software and towards web services!
