dmedia M0 WiMAX MID gets video hands-on

We called dmedia a “damp squib” when they failed to show up with their promised WiMAX MID at CES; they countered by tipping a Computex launch, and sure enough the 4.3-inch touchscreen device appeared.  The M0 has a Fujitsu WiMAX module together with a Samsung 533-800MHz CPU and 800 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, plus a 5-megapixel camera.

There’s also a second, lower-resolution camera up front for video calls, and the WiMAX connectivity is accompanied by Bluetooth 2.0+EDR with A2DP support.  There’s also A-GPS and GPS, a USB port, orientation sensor and a microSD card slot.

The dmedia M0 runs Windows CE 6.0 R2, measures 137 x 74 x 14.5 mm and weighs under 200g.  No word on which locations it might launch in, but considering the US does have a (fledgling) WiMAX network it would certainly make sense for dmedia to at least explore bringing it over.
