Wistron MID loaded with Windows Mobile 6.5


ARM announced earlier this week that Wistron would be showing off a "sleek 5" advanced Internet experience device" at MWC, and here it is . . . running Windows Mobile just like the Samsung SWD-M100 MID spotted a few days ago.

Unlike some of the other products at the ARM booth, this thin device didn't have an accompanying sign to identify its specs, but Engadget's photos and ARM's previous announcement provide enough details to piece together a half-decent estimation.

  • 5-inch touchscreen
  • ARM v7 processor
  • Windows Mobile 6.5
  • Optical mouse
  • Stylus with stylus slot built into device
  • Voice/Phone capabilities (those are "talk" and "end" buttons in the first photo below, right?)
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • Dedicated volume buttons, back and home hardware buttons, headphone jack, reset pinhole
  • Available in 2009 (despite its "tech demo" status)

A few "mysteries":

What kind of slot/connector/port is that at the bottom (larger photo here)?


And what are those "dots" at the top when the unit is held in portrait mode? It looks like the larger one is either an accelerometer or ambient light sensor (seems too small for a camera) and the four small ones are status indicators or maybe–and this is very unlikely–a capacitive touch scroller. What do you think?
