Computex this June is definitely something to keep your eye out for. MSI will be debuting a bunch of their upcoming tablets that will come in both 8.9 and 10-inch sizes. These are expected to hit the market in Q3 of this year and they'll be running either Android or Windows 7.

Labels: ,

Sad, sad news for those of you waiting for the LG GW990 "smartphone". It won't be hitting the market since it was intended that it was just a proof of concept. That means that it won't be released in the second half of this year. The handset was running Moblin, but we already know that it will continue on to become MeeGo. Inside of this smartphone was an Intel Moorestown Atom CPU that might find its way into some smartbooks / netbooks / MIDs.

It looks like Acer will start to unveil a part of their upcoming "full line" of MIDs sometime next month (May). The patent photo above was filed in January 2009 so this is a long time coming. There aren't any specification rumours right now but these MIDs will be running on Acer's own Shell UI 4.0, which is likely based on Windows Mobile. You can bet on a bunch of them being at Computex this June.
