Chinese firm Routon could be the first to bring an Android MID (mobile internet device) to the market, in the shape of the Routon P760 and P730. Each MID has a 4.8-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen, 4GB or 8GB of flash storage and integrated CDMA EVDO connectivity (GSM is currently optional), and Routon offer either their own generic Linux build or Google’s open-source mobile OS.
The key difference between the P760 and the P730 is the numeric keypad, which the latter lacks. Otherwise the specifications are the same: a 677MHz Samsung CPU, 256MB of RAM, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Routon also include a GPS receiver, and a TV tuner is optional.
There’s also a 2.0-megapixel camera and 2,000mA battery. The Routon P760 and P730 should officially launch in May, though specifications might change and of course the company still needs to find distributors to actually bring their MIDs to market.
