Aigo MID gets launch date and Price.

It looks like MIDs are starting to move. There are already two Menlow based devices in the market in Japan, the Willcom D4 and the Kohjinsha SC3 (that I’m testing at the moment – more about that later.) and last night I read at UMPCFever in Hong Kong that the Aigo MID is launching on 08.08.08. That’s the first day of the Olympics. My guess is that the Lenovo device will launch then too as it appears to be part of an Olympic sponsorship agreement.

Local price is going to be $670 which tallies with the Taiwanese price for the Gigabyte M528 – $750 with WWAN. It looks like UMPCFever will get one for testing very soon after the launch so keep an eye on their website.

Update: That price doesn’t include WWAN.

As for US and EU launch dates for the Gigabyte M528 version of this device – No news. Sorry.
