ClarionMiND GPS MID gets unboxed, played with: Video Demo

Clarion's navigation MID launched last November, but it's taken a while for hands-on experience with the GPS-enabled touchscreen device to emerge.  Clarion have also tweaked the name slightly, to ClarionMiND (with no space) over apparent "legal issues".  Steve Paine has been playing with the ClarionMiND for the MID Moves project, and despite some obvious drawbacks - a pitiful battery good for at most an hours standalone use, and the lack of 3G - Clarion have actually done what other MID manufacturers struggle to achieve.

Lenovo IdeaPad U8 MID gets Windows XP dual-boot: Video demo

Lenovo's IdeaPad U8 MID usually only gets to play with its own Linux-based OS, but there's no reason why its 800MHz processor and 4.8-inch WVGA touchscreen shouldn't be stressed with Microsoft's Windows XP.  UMPC Fever forum member "ideapadu8" obviously thought so, promptly putting both XP and the aigo MID Linux OS onto his ultraportable.
