HTC Internet devices in 08

HTC, creators of phones like the P3470 and the Touch, is joining Intel's push to create Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), according to sources from the Taiwanese cellphone industry. The HTC products are said to be scheduled for launch sometime in 2008, and will combine aspects of both phones and UMPCs, including voice functions. Exact features and specifications are otherwise unknown; the devices will use Intel's x86 architecture, though, and will thus also be able to run a wide range of applications.

HTC's efforts represent a contribution to a second wave of MIDs, which are expected to be substantially cheaper than current models. Despite the addition of voice to HTC's devices, they should still be priced below the present standard for MIDs, which is $599 to $799. [via DigiTimes]
