GiiNii intros Movit Mini

HDTV, digital camera and photo camera maker GiiNii introduced its Movit Mini Mobile Internet Device (MID) at last week's CES. The device comes with a 4.3-inch touchscreen that's good for 480x272 resolution. While it's not a cellphone and has no access to wireless data networks, the device ships with a Skype application that lets users make phone calls over the Internet. There is an option to connect to the web via a mobile phone's data access, though how exactly has not been defined.

The device does have a Bluetooth 2.0 connection, allowing for connections to compatible devices. There is just 256MB of built-in storage, though adding an external flash memory card, thumb drive or hard drive is possible via the included mini-USB 2.0 port. A built-in webcam lets users capture videos and still photos. Lesser features and applications include a microphone and speaker, along with a stereo headset jack, calculator, address book and alarm.

GiiNii will also introduce a home version of the model, the Movit Maxx, with similar if not identical specs as the Mini, though with a larger, 7-inch touchscreen.

The Movit Mini is expected to launch in mid-2009, while the Maxx will be ready for consumer consumption by late summer. Prices for either have not been announced.

    Battery life

    The engineer at their booth said that it will only get 3-4 hours on a full charge, though they've been struggling to get more than 90 minutes in the lab. It will be a standard lithium ion battery.
