BenQ announced it will show off its first Mobile Internet Device (MID) at CES 2008. This device will be based on the Intel Menlow platform.
Featuring wireless technologies such as WiFi and 3.5G, BenQ’s maiden MID focuses on simplicity. Surfing the web, sharing videos, music or photographs, blogging, emailing, instant messaging, social networking on Flickr and Facebook will no longer be a hassle as users can expect increased Internet access speed, a user-friendly interface and a large 4.8 inch touch screen which gives a full-screen Internet experience right in the users’ hands. The device also consumes comparatively lower power than a normal UMPC, making it the best mobile device for someone always on-the-go.
“As a global digital lifestyle solutions leader, BenQ cannot help but see that our users have increasingly sophisticated and complex needs to fulfill their increasingly mobile lifestyle,” Peter Chen, General Manager of Technology Product Center, BenQ Corporation said, “BenQ MID combines the advantages of notebooks and smartphones to satisfy users’ multiple demands in a single device. Not only do we put the familiar PC experience in our users’ hands, they are now allowed to have high-speed internet access, work with a powerful CPU, and enjoy the full screens previously only available on notebooks.”
