New MID from Nokia?

There is a speculation that the santa will have the new MID from Nokia this year. This device will have a sliding keyboard and 4.2-inch display and may replace the current N810. No assumptions made on the size and battery life yet. But there is another interesting device called Nautilus  (codename), which is said to have a ultra-thin touchscreen, a sensor to trigger the opening of a motorized ultra-thin keyboard with keys rising automatically for better feel! Sounds like a super cool device. Nautilus is expected to be in the market by mid 2010.

SmartQ 5, low priced MID ever

The SmartQ 5 MID is priced very low at a 899 Chinese Yuan (USD $132). It is powered by an ARM processor and features a 4.3 inch touchscreen display with a 800×480 resolution. Supports the necessary WiFi 802.11b/ga and Bluetooth connectivity and runs Ubuntu Linux. Pre-installed applications include the StarDict dictionary, FBReader ebook reader. I can also see a SD Card slot but no info yet.

Lenovo teases with Pocket Yoga


Take a look at the Lenovo Pocket Yoga concept sketches at flickr. Too good for a concept, slim and elegant, wide screen with touch interface, flip to tablet mode, etc., The display could have been made even skinnier with OLED displays though. Well, we are not sure of any specifications yet.
But looks like Lenovo said the product is complete and will be announcing more formal information.
