What’s this? The BenQ S6 MID that was previously reserved for Italy and the Lenovo IdeaPad U8 that was thought to be exclusive to China both available for preorder in the US and UK? I can’t believe my eyes either, but there they are: the S6 and U8 in all of their unpriced and who-knows-when-they’ll-start-shipping glory on the eXpansys US and UK sites.
Whether or not you’re interested in either of these Intel MIDs, the simple fact that they might finally be available to a wider audience is cause for celebration. I say "might" instead of "will," however, because the LG XNote B831 UMPC went up for preorder in January . . . and it still isn’t shipping.
Whether the BenQ and Lenovo MIDs meet the same fate remains to be seen, but if you decide to preorder, it wouldn’t hurt to prepare yourself for a long wait.
