It's not all Tegra and Snapdragon at Computex this week: VIA are also making an appearance with their processors showing up in the latest devices.  One such example is this iDOT CCI 3.8-inch mobile internet device (MID).  Using the familiar sliding form-factor of Aigo's MIDs, the CCI device has an 800 x 480 resistive touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard and runs either VIA's 500MHz fanless Eden ULV CPU or an 800MHz Freescale MX51.

Update: Video demo after the cut

Chipset and graphics are courtesy of VIA's VX875 Media System Processor and UniChrome Pro II IGP, respectively, and they're paired with a healthy 1GB of RAM.  Connectivity includes Bluetooth 2.1 and a transflash card reader, plus there's a 3.2-megapixel webcam and GPS.

According to iDOT, the CCI MID is dual-platform, running Windows XP and Android.  It's unclear whether one single device would have both of those systems, or if they're trying to cover all their bases: Android smartphone or full XP MID, depending on what resellers prefer.  No word on pricing or availability, but we hear there's video coming up from at least one blogger attending the show.  Video below courtesy jkkmobile:
