BenQ’s MID Aries2

The BenQ MID Aries2 won the bronze award for “Interactive Product Experiences” at recent IDEA Award 2008.

It’s rumored to be powered by an Intel Silverthorne 800MHz CPU, with 512MB of RAM and a 4GB SSD. Connectivity includes HSDPA, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. The initial design was made with convenience for Internet users in mind. Its ultra-light weight makes it highly mobile. You can open windows and access them by simply shaking the device. Use finger or stylus to type, zoom and click. Flip the device vertically or horizontally and you get to see some mode changes.

BenQ has suggested the portable touchscreen device would launch in Europe this quarter. It will be one of the most anticipated portables of the year.
