Computex 08: Looks like a fat iPhone


Nvidia was showing off its prototype MID device during a pre-Computex press conference in Taipei, Taiwan, earlier today and our first impression of the device is that is looks somewhat like an iPhone that ate a bit too much, a bit too fast.

Still, it does have some features up its sleeve that you won’t get with your iPhone, such as a built-in HDMI interface which can be used for connecting it to an HD TV set and display video at 720p or 1080p, depending on which model of CPU is used.

It seems to be just as prone to fingerprint smudges as the iPhone,  and you can see it for yourself from the picture below after having been handled by a large room of journalists.

As you can see on the second picture, it also offers connectivity for headphones, some kind of analog display output, USB 2.0, HDMI, of course, and it also seems to have a microSD card slot for memory expansion.

The UI looks quite slick, as you can see from the third picture, but don’t be fooled, as this is only a fancy front end to Windows CE and not a custom OS.

Nvidia wasn’t showing any partner devices, as their partners were either unwilling to show off early devices at this stage or just hadn’t gotten that far in product development.
