Josh Bancroft, passionate blogger and Intel employee, was over in Shanghai at the IDF, or Intel Developer Forum this past week. He got his first hands on with a MID and captures it for posterity it in this brief video. Josh puts his fingerprints on the Gigabyte MID with slide-out keyboard, so if you haven’t seen this device enough just yet, here’s another 90-seconds or so. Just a basic look at the hardware and touch-friendly user interface. BTW: great IDF coverage in Twitter and on your blog Josh. Good stuff! Folks interested in getting a feel for the IDF experience at Shanghai will want to check Josh’s overview vid. I like how he tries different websites to see if they’re blocked in China. I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you which are and which aren’t.

  1. Thanks for the post, Kevin! There weren’t as many MIDs around to play with as I had hoped, and what few there were had mobs surrounding them at all times. I was lucky to get a little one on one time.

    I’ll be scouring Intel for all the MID info I can find, so stay tuned! I’ll get them to give me one to use sooner or later, or die trying! ;-)

  2. There looked to be a real lag time with the touch screen interface on this device.

    What I like about my Apple iTouch is that when you interact with a photo it’s instant. This is where Mac are streets ahead of anything that is windows based at the moment… I use an O2 Flame phone and it can be so SLOW sometimes.

    When the 3g iPhone comes to Australia I am so making the switch :O)

  3. LOL, that guy on the video obviously only dealt with capacitive touch screen on an iPhone before as a touch device. He keeps trying to use his finger-pad, instead of fingernail that is necessary for registering on resistive touch screens. :D

    Jon Dee, blame the user, not the device. Running small footprint Linux, these Atom MIDs will be plenty quick.
