BenQ S6 MID gets video unboxing; falls down as PMP replacement

It's hard to believe, but after all we've seen of the BenQ S6 MID, we've not seen a video unboxing.  Perhaps that's because of the mobile internet device's limited availability; so far, Italy looks like your best bet to get a hold of the S6, courtesy of carrier TIM.  Anyway, there's at least one S6 outside of Italy, in the hands of Ewan Spence on the MID Moves tour, and he's shared not only his video unboxing but some hands-on feedback about the compact 3G device.

I was more impressed with water-cooled Chi Lin and Vivitek full-feature projectors; but after a second look on the mini-projectors’ throwing images, I have to say the composes of three individual LED chips were not joke when it came to brightness and color reproduction. It can throw 100 of lumen and claim 20k hours of lamp life, the light source is about 10 times more usable than my home projector. If you want to give it spin, BenQ has recently announced the availability of GP1 Pocket Projector, which incorporated Luminous PhlatLight’s PT-39 chipset and Texas Instruments DLP technology to produce the on-the-go mobile beamer at its best.

The BenQ Joybook Lite U101 was first announced last month, and at the time it looked like another case of netbook-by-numbers.  It's only just now launched in Hong Kong, and according to these BenQ slides we may have missed a couple of distinctive features (as long as you remember that, in netbooks, "distinctive" can mean as little as an extra memory card supported).  The screen is the key difference, being true 16:9 aspect rather than the more typical 16:10.
