This device totally came out of left field, because it’s still unclear exactly who the manufacturer is and what badge it will carry. What we can tell you about the X10 is that it’s a mobile Internet device (MID) and comes with a high-def surprise. Beyond the fairly standard seven-inch (800 x 480) touchscreen display, you’ll notice that this MID comes with the ability to output 1080p HD content over an HDMI connection. Great for sharing videos on your HDTV, but with only 256MB of RAM I wonder if performance will be an issue.
Curiously, the yet unnamed manufacturer didn’t decide to jump onto the Google Android bandwagon for the operating system. It didn’t go with any form of Windows 7 either. Instead, they decided to go with Windows CE 6 of all things. Go figure. Rounding out the specs are WiFi, 256MB RAM, and 2GB of internal storage. With such minimal memory, the SD slot will be your main bank for HD viewing.
The X10 lists at $179.99.
