For Acer, the future is the MID, and for you, that future starts next month. In May the company will launch what is said to be a "full line" of mobile internet devices, following up on that patent application filed way back in January of 2009 (which came complete with the incredibly high-detail picture above). What the company is not saying is exactly what the nature of these MIDs will be, except than they will be rocking version 4.0 of the company's Shell UI. It's a new version of the layer that was applied over Windows Mobile on smartphones like the M900, going all Bob on us by trying to recreate a virtual office. At this point we don't know whether version 4.0 will still be built atop WinMo, but at least we won't have to wait long to find out.
