Eston adds MID-05 slate to Android MID lineup


If the Eston MID-02 slider's oversized bezel was one of the reasons that kept the device off your gadget radar, then perhaps the company's newest Android/WinCE MID will pique your interest.

Meet the Eston MID-05, a keyboard-less slate/tablet with a 5-inch WVGA touchscreen, SDHC card slot, 802.11b/g WiFi, and 624MHz Marvell PXA303 processor. The CPU is disappointing, I know, but Eston does seem to be improving its products with each new release.

The MID-01, for example, had a smaller 4.3-inch display with a lower resolution of 480 x 272 and only ran Windows CE 6.0. So it's probably only a matter of time before we start seeing Bluetooth, a better processor, and other improved specs included in something like the MID-10 or MID-11.

    *sigh* when do we get to start seeing 9″ android tablets? :-(

    (though, technically, I know they’d be off-topic for this site)

  • In my opinion, Mobile OSes shouldn’t go bigger than 7″. Why? With that real estate, U will be losing a lot of functions that full OSes have. Coz if that’s the case, I wanna see WM lovers asks for 9″ Windows CE, WM 6.5 or 7.

    I don’t get excited for mobile OSes. I wanna see full windows on stuff that’s this size.

    I know those are not as common, but a 5″ WinMo 6 device doesn’t get me going.
