BenQ S6 MID going global?

The previously announced BenQ S6 mobile Internet device (MID) that launched in Italy will be making its way to other markets soon, as indicated by BenQ's global product page for the gadget. The device uses an Intel Atom processor running at 800MHz and a 4.8-inch, 800x480 touchscreen for data access that is faster than 3G but not quite up to 4G network speeds. A video user guide has also surfaced, showcasing the device's Free Surf user interface.

Further evidence of the S6's expansion outside of Italy comes via the spec sheet, which reveals the S6 will support 2100MHz UMTS/HSDPA networks in addition to 900/1800/1900MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE frequencies. A stylus is included with the S6, as is a three-axial G-sensor that allows web page scrolling and other functions by just tilting the MID. An 802.11b/g Wi-Fi module is also included for accessing networks, while Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR allows syncing with compatible devices.

The device doubles as a multimedia player as well, supporting Ogg, DiVX 5/6, VC1, H.264 and other, more popular video formats and MIDI, MP3, Ogg and WAV audio files. No word on release or pricing information, although the S6 is currently available in Italy for the equivalent of about $580. [via Pocketables]
