CeBIT 2008: An Exciting MID Shown
It looks like Steve (aka Chippy) has struck gold at CeBIT 2008:
Myself and JKK had a good 30 minutes in private with the M528 this morning and I am very happy to say that it impressed us. Running Ubuntu Mobile on an Atom 800Mhz with 4GB flash and a very nice thumboard (read, better than the N810) it seems to perform as well as it looks. Its more pocketable, more powerful, better looking and will be priced very competitively.
I like the looks of this thing. It’s the first MID that’s caught my attention in a good way. It also reminds me of another prototype shown last year and mentioned in my old blog.
There are more photos and a video is promised, so go look!
It will be very interesting to see what the price of this will be. It’s competing in a world that now has such things as the Everex CloudBook and Asus EeePC! That wasn’t something anyone expected when Intel first announced its MID initiative.
