Most MIDs are terrible. They pack too little power into a package that's either too large, too expensive, or both. This has lead some people to speculate that the device category itself is inherently flawed and dying. If any MID can prove these people wrong, it's the Fujitsu UH900 LifeBook (Netbooked). The LifeBook looks sort of like a mini-netbook, and is billed as being only as large as a long wallet. It weighs 500 grams.

The hardware is what makes this thing special. First off, it's got a 5.6" multitouch screen and full Windows 7 compatibility. It brags Flash support and can be used for online form filling. There's an ECO button that allows you to extend battery life by nixing several features, and quick-launch programmable media buttons as well.
The UH900 packs an Intel Z530 processor and an impressive 64 GB SSD. It has Bluetooth support, a stereo mic, a webcam, and integrated 3.5G. It is also capable of wireless DVD sharing with other PCs. There's been no price listed for the LifeBook yet. Cost is the one thing that could screw up what sounds like a perfect MID.
On paper at least, the LifeBook is the pinnacle synthesis of full-featured PC and mobile device. You can browse, view media, and communicate with the LifeBook as (or more) easily than you would on a cell phone. You can also use it to do anything you'd normally do on a computer, making it a fantastic companion for those of us who work out of our PCs. The SSD has plenty of space, the 5.6" multitouch screen sounds divine...the only thing this baby lacks is a SIM slot. And an official release date.
