Aigo MID alternatives

Sony Tablet P, 5.5 inch, 370 grams (0.82 lbs)
UMID mbook SE, 4.8 inch, 366 grams (0.81 lbs)
UMID BZ, 4.8 inch, 363 grams (0.8 lbs)
Solves all of the major issues of the original M1 and adds a useful mouse pointer. With battery life of over 4hrs this is now a serious contender as a productive, pocketable UMPC.
XPPhone XPPhone, 4.8 inch, 400 grams (0.88 lbs)
Early pricing (local, China) is said to be the equivalent of $400 but specifications are not known. If build quality can be kept high, this 400gm basic UMPC/Phone could find some customers. AMD processor is not very powerful but reaches full web speeds similar to very low-end Atom-based devices. 3D support is poor. Given a fast SSD, this could reach acceptable office application speeds.
Viliv N5, 4.8 inch, 399 grams (0.88 lbs)
Lives up to the pre-release hype. Great build quality, fast SSD, good keyboard and battery life. It's expensive when compared to the UMID BZ so you'll have to 'value' that extra memory and build quality. Base model, surprisingly, comes with no video out.
