Compal Tabasco is mysterious T-Swivel MID: coming to CES 2009?

The mysterious T-swivelling MID that was mistakenly identified by some as the Palm Roteo has been correctly traced back to Compal, in the shape of their Tabasco MID concept.  On show at Computex 2008 back in June, the non-working handheld was meant to demonstrate a 4.5-inch (or 5-inch) touchscreen device with a 3.2-megapixel rear camera with 2x optical zoom and flash plus a front-facing webcam.

Aigo's P8860 has been one of the more interesting mobile internet devices (MIDs) we've been keeping track of, not least because it actually managed to move out of prototype stage and into the hands of buyers.  The 800MHz Atom powered ultraportable has a 4.8-inch touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and runs a specially tweaked version of Linux intended to make mobile computing straightforward; Jenn at Pocketables has been putting the P8860 through its paces, and while there's plenty to recommend it, there are also a few big questions left over at the end.

Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet: Android 2.1 slate for $300

Velocity Micro are no strangers to tablets - the company attempted to crack the market with the M5 MID back in 2009, a rebadged aigo P8860 - but we reckon they've a better chance this time around with the Cruz Tablet and Cruz Reader.  Each model has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen, runs Android 2.1 and supports Flash 10.1, but the real boon is the price: the Cruz Tablet is expected to come in at $299.99, while the Cruz Reader will be $199.99.
