Wibrain M1 MID on show (again)

It's been a few months since we last heard about the Wibrain M1 MID - then known as the EKING M1 - and now the company is back flaunting the 4.8-inch touchscreen device all over again.  Still bearing a full QWERTY keyboard, the oversized-Sidekick uses Intel's Atom CPU paired with WiFi/HSDPA/Bluetooth connectivity.

Other specs include either 512MB of 1GB of RAM, and 8GB or 16GB of SSD storage.  The touchscreen runs at 1024 x 600 resolution and the round pad to the right of it is a circular touchpad.  OS is either Linux or Windows XP Home, and - in Korea, at least - the M1 will have an optional TV tuner.

Still unclear is pricing and availability.  According to AVING, Wibrain are announcing "the development" of the M1 in the Korean market; that, to my jaded eyes, looks like a cry of "we're still alive, don't forget about us while we struggle to get our MID onto the market before the ARM-based rivals gobble it all up."
