Lenovo is working on a new MID
The VAIO P that shrunk in the wash
Although there's very little information to go on at the moment, it seems like Lenovo is busy working on a new MID which looks very similar to Sony's VAIO P netbook, albeit a lot smaller. It's another Mr Blurry Cam in action, which makes it even harder to tell any details.
However, a few things are pretty clear from the pictures, one, it's a very small device, but not small enough to be pocket size which is why we presume this is a new MID. It has a QWERTY keyboard, although it's a more full-size keyboard than those found on Smartphones. The screen is most definitely wide screen and there seems to be a web cam on the left and some control buttons on the right.
The keyboard also seems to have a track point built into it (the green knob) although there doesn't seem to be any corresponding buttons for it. It might also have a couple of USB 2.0 ports on the right hand side, but it's too hard to tell from the blurry picture, but there's definitely something going on there.
The device looks like its leather clad and it has very clear Lenovo branding. Hopefully this device should turn up soon, maybe even at IDF Beijing, as we'd dare say that it's based on the next generation of Atom hardware for MID's.
