You'd think we'd seen every form factor and possible processor combination from Computex already, but III have still managed to surprise us.  Their hybrid system combines the base of an HP Mini 1000-series netbook, from which the Intel Atom processor has been junked and replaced with a 1.6GHz VIA C7-M CPU.  Meanwhile the display has been replaced with a detachable touchscreen slate, with its own processor, and running Android.  The two can be used separately.

xpPhone video hands on: 3G, 5hrs battery & plenty of bulk

ITG's xpPhone was one of the more curious prospects for Computex - something with the form-factor of a MID but resolutely intended to be used as a cellphone - and jkkmobile stopped by to check it out.  The xpPhone certainly tries to fit in as much as possible: SSD up to 64GB in size, multiple wireless options including Bluetooth, WiFi, 3G and WiMAX, and an AMD mobile processor.

MIDs a failure?  No no no, how could that be when this little beauty is headed to the market?  Known here as the Compal KAX15 MID, but likely to find itself a variety of alternative brands including Gigabyte and Aigo, it's based on Intel's existing Menlow platform and packs an 800MHz Atom Z515 processor, a 4.8-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Acer Android netbook will be dual-OS: no escape from Windows

When Acer global vice-president Jim Wong said the company would continue to supply Windows netbooks alongside their new Android netbooks, we didn't expect that to mean dual-booting.  However, much to Linux-lovers dismay (and in fact anybody who wanted to avoid the so-called "Windows tax" of roughly $25 for an XP license), company president JT Wang has now confirmed that at least the first wave of Android netbooks will come with both open-source and Microsoft OS.

It's not all Tegra and Snapdragon at Computex this week: VIA are also making an appearance with their processors showing up in the latest devices.  One such example is this iDOT CCI 3.8-inch mobile internet device (MID).  Using the familiar sliding form-factor of Aigo's MIDs, the CCI device has an 800 x 480 resistive touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard and runs either VIA's 500MHz fanless Eden ULV CPU or an 800MHz Freescale MX51.
