Identity MID phone prototype
Identity MID phone prototype

[CES 2010] Now this might be hot when it hits the market (hopefully) at the end of the year if Identity is able to find a mobile carrier (or carriers) as their partner(s). Touting to go up head-to-head against the iPhone, Identity hopes to price their MID phone at no more than $200 with a typical 2-year contractual agreement. It does look as though it comes with a full touchscreen display, although for those who are still uncomfortable with a virtual keyboard for typing emails and text messages, there is always the QWERTY keyboard that reveals itself when you slide the display sideways just like the Motorola Droid. Running on the Android OS, do you think this will be able to provide decent competition against the latest iPhone model by then? One thing that might change in its MID phone prototype in its final release would be a slightly smaller display as they ought to make room for the standard four-key row (Back, Menu, Home and Search shortcuts) that is a staple on all Android handsets to date.
