To be honest, I'm not really into netbooks. I'm looking for an internet device that is more than just a really tiny laptop. This MID concept seems to be a step in the right direction.

Right off the bat it is plain to see that this thing just looks good. It's designed more like a slider phone—which opens up portable possibilities beyond that of a simple netbook. Plus, the proposed features are actually realistic: QWERTY keyboard with trackball, wide LCD touchscreen, 7 "action buttons" that can be used when the device is closed, two USB slots, microphone and audio input, SD card reader, stereo speakers and docking connector.

Again, the MID is only a concept, but I can see how people might dig it if it became a real world product. [Yanko]

The keyboard layout on this makes sense by getting rid of the trackpad like the one Eee PC tablet. It actually made a smaller profile. I mean, why bother with a trackpad when you have touchscreen?
