Android MID spotted

An Android-powered touchscreen mobile Internet Device (MID) is in development if these photos found by >Pocketables are any indication. The photos reveal the device may also have some phone functionality and an external SD memory card slot as the words "SD card & phone storage" are visible on the handset's surface, though a microphone or speaker are not visible. Other than the touchscreen, there are just two controls in the form of hardware buttons on the top of the device.

Little else is known about the unnamed gadget, with specs rumored to include a Wi-Fi radio, access to 3G networks and preloaded applications that include MSN Messenger and GTalk. Processing power may come from a Rockchip CPU. The touchscreen is believed to be between 4.3 and 5 inches.

Prices or release dates are not yet known.
