New Dr. Mobile slider spotted at Computex


Details are pretty slim at the moment, but jkkmobile spotted this little slider device made by Taiwan-based Dr. Mobile at Computex today that's worth sharing. Based purely on the photos (jkk is uploading a video, presumably with more info, as I write this), the unit runs what looks like Windows Mobile to me (but is actually XP and/or Android according to the specs placard), has a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus on the back, and features a chiclet-style QWERTY keyboard. UPDATE: Specs shown below.


It isn't clear whether the "Nano by VIA" printed on the back refers to the CPU or the name of the device; my first thought was the former but the more I think about it, the more uncertain I feel. In any case, without knowing the full specs, I'm hesitant to call it a MID and frankly not too impressed with what I see. Design-wise, it kind of reminds me of a smaller version of the LG XNote B831 UMPC that was never released with that thick glossy black bezel and silvery white keyboard.

I wonder if it has phone capabilities . . .

UPDATE: Specs from UMPCPortal's Flickr stream.


Dual platform: Windows XP and Android! Hmm. No mention of the 5-megapixel camera on the back, but apparently the device (which bears no Dr. Mobile branding, by the way) has a 3.2-megapixel webcam.
