Tri-OS SmartQ V5 MID goes on sale in China

updated 02:30 pm EST, Thu December 31, 2009

SmartQ V5 MID ships with Android, Linux, Win CE

SmartQ has launched its V5 mobile Internet device (MID) in China recently. The V5 has a 4.3-inch resistive touchscreen with 800x480 resolution and can play back 3D graphics and video thanks to its hardware acceleration, though exactly what type isn't being specified. The company does reveal, however, that the device is powered by a 600MHz ARM11 CPU which can be overclocked to 800MHz thanks to a firmware update. Most interestingly, the V5 ships with Android, Ubuntu Linux and Windows CE 6.0 preloaded.

Other specs include 256MB of DDR2 RAM, 2GB of storage space and a microSD memory card slot for expanding storage by as much as 32GB. A Wi-Fi module is built in, as is Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR support. Popular audio and video codecs can be played back, with a mini-HDMI output letting users play 1080p HD video on larger screens. A USB 2.0 on-the-go connection is also part of the specs.

The V5 is now available in China for the equivalent of about $161. [via Pocketables]
