Compal unveils rebadged Gigabyte/Aigo MID with 3G


Evidently giving up on last summer’s Ultra Mobile Device, Taiwan-based Compal is now lending its name to the MID already known by most as the Gigabyte M528 and Aigo P8800 series. Unlike its physically identical siblings, however, the unnamed Compal MID uses an Option wireless module and GlobeTrotter Connect for Linux software for integrated HSPA 3G connectivity. Other specs include GPS, slide-out keyboard, 4.8-inch touchscreen, and presumably an 800MHz Intel Atom Z500 processor and a small amount of flash storage.


No word on pricing or availability at the moment, but since the "new" MID is on display at IDF in San Francisco this week, we should find out soon.
