Mysterious mintpass mintpad 7wise and WSketch outed


We've known for quite some time that Korea-based mintpass is currently working on a second-generation mintpad and that Android, WiBro, GPS, an all-metal body, and a touchscreen that won't be larger than 7 inches are all under consideration for the upcoming device. So when moveplayer recently discovered listings for two previously unknown models called the mintpad 7wise and mintpad WSketch on the company's website, it's hard not to assume that at least one of these could be the mintpad v2.

Unfortunately, when I got in touch with an account executive at mintpass about the mysterious models, I was told that "something like those are in the process of developing" but that no additional information could be shared just yet. That the 7wise and WSketch are even listed as drop-down menu options for customer service (along with the already released original mintpad, which is still available through Amazon, and mintpad DMB) suggests that the units are already well beyond the "process of developing" to me, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
