UMID M1 import hits $750 for non-3G XP MID

UMID M1 import hits $750 for non-3G XP MID

We've a definite soft-spot for the UMID M1 here at SlashGear, but with the company themselves dragging their feet on official US and European sales, and import prices riding ever higher, it's hard to see the clamshell MID ever finding its niche.  Australian-based importer Justek have tweaked the pricing on the non-HSDPA version of the M1, but for US customers it's still in excess of $660.

We had a chance to spend some brief time with the UMID M1 MID at Mobile World Congress this week, courtesy of Intel's stand, and in the plastic it certainly does little to disappoint if it's a super-small full QWERTY notebook you're looking for.  One thing that was hammered home after some hands-on time: this is very much a niche product.
