MTube Ultraportable Shoves VGA YouTube in Your Pocket

There are already opportunities to enjoy mobile YouTube on your cell phone, but how about a completely dedicated device that’ll serve up those videos on beautiful VGA touchscreen? The MTube is an exercise in possibilities from Taiwan’s Science and Technology Advisory Group.

Shaped kinda like a personal media player, the MTube features a 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen and it appears to be dedicated to keeping you entertained. In addition to the YouTube videos being served — connecting via WiMAX — the MTube also has 8GB of on-board storage for your own goodies. Processing power comes by way of Linux and a 1GHz VIA CPU.

And this thing is small. The little video player that could weighs just 150 grams and measures 8.5 x 8.5 x 2cm. Too bad the battery life is a mere four hours. It’s a concept device with expected commercial production to commence in 2009.
