Tainell T500 MID gets speed, OS upgrades, and new virtual keyboard

Originally announced last year to be released in September, the Atom-based Tainell T500 MID has been laying low since missing its debut and probably would've been completely forgotten if the company didn't just reveal some new information about it along with some optional upgrades to keep up with the times.

The previously specified 1.1GHz Intel Atom Z510 processor can now be replaced with faster 1.33GHz or 1.6GHz variants, while in addition to Windows XP, options for Windows 7 and Moblin are also now available. Other optional upgrades include a 1.3MP webcam (up from 0.3MP), increasing the RAM from 1GB to 2GB, and replacing the standard 32GB SSD to a 64GB model. Most other specifications have been retained, including the 5-inch WSVGA touch screen, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity (full specs). The latest images also show a DialKeys-like virtual keyboard that fans out from the bottom corners of the screen. Unfortunately, there aren't any more details regarding pricing or availability at this point.
