BYD Mars Is a Phone and an MID Running Windows XP

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Yes, Intel showed off their new Atom models at IDF Beijing, but they weren't stopping there. One gadget in particular definitely caught my eye. It's the BYD MID, codenamed Mars, that is a phone-and-MID in one and uses Intel's Atom CPU. If you watch the video below, the man on stage talked briefly about the MID. No spec sheet was revealed, but we'll just have to wait. The device is a phone, but when you open its clamshell design you get an MID that runs on Windows XP and has its own physical QWERTY keyboard. I don't know how useful the phone aspect of the device is because it'd be similar to holding a brick to your ear, but the MID aspect of it is magnificent. Look out for it at a later date.
