We're kinda-sorta coming around on the MIDs
now that we've gotten a chance to play with Moblin 2.0
, but it'll take some great hardware to really convince us (or hell
) -- like this promising first Moorestown reference design from Elektrobit. Yeah, it's not quite the amazing mockup device
that Intel's been showing off for a couple years, but it's still pretty attractive, and it's actually pretty small at just a half-inch thick with a four-inch HD screen. You're also looking at HDMI out, either WiMAX or 3G mobile broadband, and voice capability. Sadly, none of this will ship until Intel delivers the Mooretown chips
, so we won't be able to do anything except sniff vapor until 2010.
