aigo have been showing off their aigoPad tablets in China again, with their CEO promising five different models - various boasting 4-, 5- and 7-inch screen sizes - launching from July 2010.  Interestingly, Shanzhaiben's photos from the launch (note that "aigo" translates as "patriot" since that's the Chinese meaning) only seem to show two of the units - what looks to be the smallest and largest versions - and neither bears a huge resemblance to the renders we've seen before.

Aigo N500 Maemo phone/MID hybrid hits China

Unless you're a MID addict you may not have heard of Aigo, but with the company actually having shipped products rather than merely flaunted concepts we're liable to give them a little extra rope.  That makes this new MID - the Aigo N500 - particularly interesting, since it runs Maemo just like the Nokia N900.

aigo MID turns UMPC with battery, OS and casing mods

For connectivity, input options and simply fitting into your pocket, aigo's MID certainly has plenty of potential.  Unfortunately, as reviewers have discovered, it's hamstrung by its OS: adding new apps is a struggle, meaning most people will be stuck with what software comes out of the box.  One owner, though, has heavily customized his 3G-equipped aigo to better perform as a UMPC rather than just an internet browser; full video demo, plus details of the changes, after the cut.

Aigo P8860 reviewed: Hackable, admirable, but perhaps not buyable

Aigo P8860 reviewed: Hackable, admirable, but perhaps not buyable

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.
