We got a chance to play with the bizarre Digifriends MID at the Intel booth, and it actually seems kind of cool. The basic concept with the Vista-running, Menlow-sporting, lime green device is that you can snap on all kinds of add-ons to it, like a gamepad, keyboard, stand, speakers, and a hard dri

That's right, kids. The crazy, long-iPhone prototype we saw demoed at IDF a few months back has made its way into our greedy hands. We've got to say, Intel should just bring this thing to market right now. While the UI wasn't up and running, just holding the thing, and checking out the demo shots o

We came, we saw... we handled. We finally got a chance to play with LG's newest entry into the growing line of forthcoming Intel MIDs, and we're pretty impressed. The device is small and light, has a really solid build, and definitely is going to give current players (N810, we're looking at you) a

Get your Silverthorn, red hot 45-nm dual-core \"Silverthorn\" processor and \"Poulsbo\" chipsets here. For some reason, we love to look at these future Menlow-based MID devices even though we've yet to find a home for the UMPC in our cold, jaded hearts. And that shiny bar above? Don't get your hopes up

It looks like Lenovo isn't the only gang of techno-hooligans launching an MID this year at CES -- word on the street (and in official PR) is that BenQ's entry to the relatively new category will be making a showing before you know it. According to the company, the device -- which we're thinking is

We suppose it was always inevitable, but things are about to get quite interesting at the intersection of cellphone and laptop processors. According to Intel, Apple has apparently committed to using the company's 45nm Silverthorne chip in multiple products slated for 2008. The chip offers the proce

We caught a peek of Asus' R3 UMPC / MID yesterday, but it got shown off in a little more detail today during a presentation on Adobe's AIR platform. No word on which variation of Intel's Menlow platform it'll be sporting, but it looks like the device will have a 4.8-inch screen with 1024 x 600 res

Intel just keeps banging out the hits from IDF. After the handful of McCaslin \"next-quarter\" and \"coming-soon\" UMPCs we saw from the chipmaker (and associates), Intel started busting out prototypes from its forthcoming Menlow chipset, using smaller, 45nm Silverthorne CPUs, and the 2009/2010 offerin

We've got to give credit where it's due, and our Chinese extension is definitely delivering the hands-on goods of late. The most recent device to get caught under their camera is EB's Menlow-based MID UMPC, which was seen still sporting a 4.8-inch 1,024 x 600 resolution display and packing Red Flag

No offense, Amtek, we're sure that McCaslin-based U560 of yours has ample reason to be so big and ugly, but we're going to put our dollars on this \"MIMD\" (Mobile Internet Multimedia Device) Menlow-based UMPC from EB if you don't mind. Yes, it's the same \"MID\" device which Intel was proudly showing

We've seen 'em before, but seeing Intel's Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) side-by-size definitely brings a strong visual to their Ultra Mobile strategy. As you've probably already guessed, that's their codenamed, \"Menlow\" reference design on the left which some OEM will surely pickup in the 2008 tim

We already knew of Intel's 2007 \"McCaslin\" ultra mobile platform strategy after peeping their pre-show slides: professional UMPCs paired with consumer-oriented, Linux-based MIDs. Still, it's always good to get the official word even if it means that Intel must travel all the way to their IDF in Bei
