How do you cook up the perfect KIRF
product? Well, you take a well-loved device, say the Nokia N810
, and start chopping off the things that made it a winner, like that oh-so-bulky QWERTY keyboard, until you get a device cheap enough to be sold as "the world's first MID
under $300." The painfully unoriginal Inkia 500 -- which isn't even the first to rip off
Nokia's internet tablet -- isn't entirely without merit, as it comes with a 5-inch touchscreen plus a ULV Atom processor, and once you pony up for 3G and GPS options it might even be useful. All that's holding it back now is the tiny issue that you can get a real N810
for the same price.
