mintpass mintpad for US

Relative fledgling company mintpass has revealed that it intends to launch its mintpad mini tablet outside of its native Korea, potentially including the US. The device centers on a nearly 2.9-inch touchscreen and is unique outside of Apple devices in focusing as much on its Internet features as on media playback. Likely using a Wi-Fi connection, it can not only browse the web with full Adobe Flash but also has a heavy community component with blogging and IM among its features. Streaming Internet video is equally an option.

Offline, the mintpad also has a calendar, contacts and memos along with a camera for taking photos or video. Its music support involves rarer formats like APE, FLAC and OGG alongside MP3, WAV and WMA; videos include the more exotic DivX and XviD as well as MPEG-4 and WMV. Owners can also record audio in WMA.

Exactly when the Windows CE-based handheld will ship to other countries hasn't been specified. However, mintpass hopes to have completed translating the interface and documentation to English by late April or early May and could clear the mintpad shortly afterwards. Koreans currently pay the equivalent of $143. [via Pocketables]
