Chuwi W3000 MID: touchscreen, WiFi & advanced DSP

Another ARM-based touchscreen device blurring the definition between PMP and MID, the Chuwi W3000 has a Telechips 7901 dual-core chipset with integrated DSP for what's said to be better audio and video playback.  There's also WiFi and possibly Bluetooth, GPS and USB Host functionality.

Underneath Chuwi's GUI lurks Windows CE 5.0, never something we particularly look forward to in a MID or PMP, but at least offering web browsing and a wealth of apps - IM, media, navigation, etc - that shouldn't push the W3000's price up.  Media file support includes MP3, WMA, OGG, AVI and RMVB, and there looks to be a 3-megapixel camera on the back too.

No word on pricing or availability, but this will likely be another import job like the SmartQ 7 MID if you want to see it outside of China.  We'll wait until we hear some hard figures and performance feedback before that.
