The new MID from MTube was shown recently at a Tapei tradeshow, and it carries a few surprises including streaming video to and from a TV.
Though better known for their netbooks, MTube certainly stands a chance to make an impression with their new Mobile Internet Device. With a 7.6 inch capacitive touch screen and an ARM processor, MTube’s new MID doesn’t look all that much different from others on the market.
Thanks to its Android architecture, the MTube MID is an impressively capable machine. It can browse the internet, view pictures and run various applications. Most importantly, it can stream video both to and from your television.
While no information is available on the streaming method – WiFi seems most likely – users only have to select a video, drag it to the appropriate spot on the screen and it pops up on your connected HDTV. Similarly, video can be streamed directly from a TV to the MID’s 800x480 OLED screen.
The MID is still in development and as such, price and availability are unknown at the moment. We’ll certainly be looking forward to more on this from MTube.
