Intel explains difference between UMPC and MID

Posted on Tuesday, January 15 2008 @ 08:05:36 CET by

Engadget had a chat with Intel's Global Internet Segment Manager of Ultra Mobility Dan Monahan about the differences between the MID and UMPC platforms:

  • Business-class device for enterprise users
  • Runs a "heavy" OS like Vista
  • Optimized for office-use applications like Excel, Word, etc.
  • MID
  • Consumer-class lifestyle device
  • Runs a 'lightweight" OS with quick startup like Linux
  • Optimized for things like media playback and web surfing
  • In 2009 (or so) Moorestown-based devices will be classed as MIDs only
