UMID Mbook (retail) Unboxing and Overview by Chippy

Posted on 14 April 2009, Last updated on 12 November 2019 by

IMG_8575This morning I received the UMID Mbook, a tiny, clamshell ultra mobile PC that everyone seems to be interested in. My opinion is that this is one of the best mobile/microblogging devices there is (and I include all smartphones) and that its a stylish, flexible ultra mobile PC of the sort that many of us wanted to see from day 1. That means, its POCKETABLE and it has a KEYBOARD!

The unboxing video is below. There’s a gallery to view and the specifications (and some hands-on review links) are in the information page. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to do a liveĀ  Q&A session on this immediately as I’m heading to Amsterdam for ‘TheNextWeb‘ conference in about 3 hours [(‘m taking the UMID. If you want to see it there, contact me.) so I’ll schedule a live session for the week beginning 19th April. Again, thanks to for sending this over. They plan to have final pricing and stock very soon.
