A grown-up Nokia N810 with 3G, slightly larger screen and a much more powerful processor for both internet and video playback should provide a much faster and more complete desktop internet experience. Browser based on Firefox 3.0 engine. Operating system based on Intel Moblin (Linux) with a tailored user interface. If the pricing is attractive, we expect these to be very popular.

UMID mbook SE, 4.8 inch, 366 grams (0.81 lbs)
Inkia 500, 4.8 inch, 350 grams (0.77 lbs)
Lluon Mobbit, 4.8 inch, 375 grams (0.83 lbs)
Clarion MiND, 4.8 inch, 323 grams (0.71 lbs)
With the relatively small battery, this is a MID that can't be used for long periods away from the charger but could enhance the in-car experience beyong simple navigation and mp3 playback.
Viliv S5, 4.8 inch, 395 grams (0.87 lbs)
Very nice pocketable PMP-style device with excellent battery life, near-desktop speed browsing and high-end media capabilities. GPS is also included which enables an all-in-one navigation package. The on-screen keyboard uses haptic feedback to improve the experience although it`s not as good as a real keyboard in our opinion. We would have liked to have seen a media slot and an external mic as this has potential as a mobile Skype client.
