S6 MID drops to 299 Euros

Posted on 14 December 2008 by



We’re double-checking that this really is a no-contract price but so far, it looks like the same deal as  UMPCPortal reader Alberto had when he bought one.

For a 3g-enabled PC its a great deal. Hell, at that price you could just by one for the coffee table…if you don’t mind an on-screen keyboard. Shame its only available in Italy.

More details and links for the S6 in the product pages.

Thanks Fab!

    Now that’s a nice price.

    Also, this new layout of yours is very confusing chippy, I keep checking the page and missing news, since I’m used to new stuff being on top, and I only see the “sticky” story without scrolling. Took me a few days to notice it actually, I thought you were being slow, but then there was a bunch of news below what was stickied :)

    Chippy, we think you do a great job, but presentation is replacing information at the mo…

    Thanks for keeping the old blog layout as well. Makes it much easier to stay updated if you check back often.

    Just a note about a minor bug though. The link when you kit “previous entries” at the bottom gives the same stories, not the older ones. The URL changes to page /2, /3 etc. but the content stays the same.

    Did mean to say, it does seem a good price. Unfortunately with the pound dropping it is almost £270.

    agree…it’s not about price only, but about the price for a certain device of a certain product “group”. and talking “MID-language”, i think it’s a good price given the specs and capabilities compared to other MIDs which are about 300 euros more expensive!
