ZTE V7 Maemo MID gets video hands-on

ZTE's Maemo-running V7 MID showed up last month in render form at the Shanghai World Expo, but the company had a working prototype this week at Computex.  ARMDevices grabbed a hands-on with the compact, 4-inch WVGA handheld - which is based on an 806MHz Marvell PXA310 chipset and has a dinky little thumb-keyboard under the touchscreen - and to our surprise it looks pretty good.

Despite the compact chassis - just 4.7 x 3.3 x 0.5 inches - the V7 packs in GPS, 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth, along with an SD card slot and microUSB port.  There's also a 3.2-megapixel camera and a 3.5mm headphone socket.

Unfortunately there's no sign of a price or a release date, which is disappointing as this actually looks quite decent.
