While the UMID MID is technically a MID or Mobile Internet Device and not a netbook, it’s clamshell design sort of makes me not care.
This tiny little guy has a 4.8 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen, an Intel Atom CPU running at 1.1GHz or 1.33GHz, 8GB to 32GB of solid state storage, and 512MB to 1GB of RAM. It also has a single mini USB port, a Micro-SD card slot, and a space for a USIM card. It comes with a 1.3MP camera and weighs just 315 grams or just over 11 ounces.
It’s kind of hard to believe something this small could run anything other than Windows CE or a stripped down version of Linux. But it’s apparently Windows XP and Vista capable. It will also be available with Linux.
The UMID MID also sports a wide array of connectivity options, with support for WiBro, HSDPA, WiMAX, WiFi, and Bluetooth. It can also pick up digital TV in Europe, Korea, and Japan thanks to DMB and DVB-T support.
