Embedded System Design MID looks . . . unique

Esl_mid

I don’t know what to say about this MID from Hong Kong company Embedded System Design Limited other than that it was in one of the capsules on the Intel MID display wall. According to the accompanying placard, it’s Atom-based, designed for Windows XP (one of the stickers says it’s Vista capable), has flash storage up to 16GB, and is well equipped with connectivity options like HSDPA and WiMax. Why those T9-looking keypad dials and optical mouse (?) are on a piece that doesn’t look like it even connects to the main unit (not securely, anyway) are unknown.

There may not have been a whole lot of "wow" at this year’s MID display, but this one is certainly worthy of a collective "ohhh-kaaay."
