C-motech shows Snapdragon-powered, WM 6.5 MID
Korea-based C-motech has shown off a new mobile Internet device (MID), the Mangrove. Unlike conventional MIDs, the 7-inch device uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Windows Mobile 6.5. The Mangrove should be quick as it centers on Qualcomm's Snapdragon CPU, which also powers smartphones like Toshiba's TG01. In this case it builds both 3G and CDMA into the chipset to give the MID data without needing a separate chipset.
It is expected that the device will include a range of wireless communications options, including Wi-Fi and WiMAX. No release dates or pricing information are known for the MID. [via AVING]
