New product: Tainell T500 MID

Posted on 19 August 2009 by

Discovered by the great Pocketables community last week, the Tainell is a new 5″ MID/ultra mobile PC based on the Intel Menlow platform that is due in Sept or October.

Looking very similar to the Viliv S5 and Inkia 500 and with similar specs too.

  • Intel Atom (Silverthorne) 1.1Ghz
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB SSD
  • 5″ 1024×600 screen
  • Webcam
  • GPS
  • 3G, Wifi and BT.

One thing i’m immediately missing are details about the on screen keyboard. Cleary a device without a physical keyboard needs an on screen keyboard and the one on Windows XP isn’t going to impress anyone. Even the floating input panel on Windows XP Tablet edition isn’t going to be interesting to most. Windows 7 could be the answer here but how much is a tablet-enabled version of that going to set people back? The licence cost could really impact the retail cost. Tainell need to look at high quality 3rd party solutions that include word completion and other must-have features.

We’ll keep an eye out for this at IDF in Sept.

All details are in the product database over at UMPCPortal now.

    These specs are NOT same as S5, as this device has web cam and can be used for a full skype experience … something that S5 is lacking.
