Peartree Sophia Mobile Internet Device (Hands On)

[CEATEC 2008] I had heard about this mobile internet device (MID) back in April, but all we had then was paper marketing materials. I’m glad to see this MID in the flesh plastic. The device is supposed to have an extension in the back (wired Ethernet+GPS+40GB HDD), but this was not shown on the show floor. However, even without the extension, this device has respectable specifications:

  • 5” WSVGA display (1024×600)
  • Atom CPU
  • 4GB SSD
  • Linux or Windows OS
  • WiFi-G, Bluetooth, W-SIM

The battery life is unknown and the lack of keyboard kind of kills it for me, but may be others won’t mind using the stylus with the touch-display. I don’t know what the price is, but here is the European distributor site (with more technical info too!)
