SmartQ7 MID revealed
The SmartQ7 Mobile Internet Device (MID) was recently unveiled and is due to go on sale in the near future in China. Sporting a 7-inch, 800x480 resolution touchscreen display, the device is meant to bring the Internet to users' laps along with other entertainment features that include digital music and video playback. The Linux-based device relies solely on a Wi-Fi connection to connect to the Internet.
The SmartQ7 is powered by a 4,500mAh lithium-polymer battery that is said to last as much as 48 hours of music playback. There is an integrated stand in the highly stylized body of the SmartQ7, which also includes stereo speakers and a USB 2.0 port. Color choices will include white, pink and lime green.
There is no indication of the price for the device, nor when it will ship in its home market of China or possibly any other markets. [via Pocketables]
