UMID might never have become a household name, but the company produced some of the more interesting mini-clamshell computers over the past few years, including the mBook line of devices. These little handheld devices looked like laptops, but with 5 inch displays and tiny keyboards, they were really probably better designed for handheld or tabletop use than, well… using while on your lap.
Unfortuantely, it looks like UMID has gone out of business, which means that the company’s little computers are either collector’s items or obsolete, depending on how you look at it.
According to Pocketables, retailer Dynamism told a customer that UMID has gone out of business. The company’s Korean website is still and up and running, but it’s possible that if UMID is continuing to offer products they may soon be available only in Korea.
