Inbrics is a company that understands where the growth of always-connected technology is taking us. Every day, people integrate "smart" devices into their lives a little bit more. We hook up media boxes to our television, we keep a spare computer (or netbook) in the kitchen, and we carry a smartphone on our way to work. Inbrics realizes that these baby steps are just the beginning.
At the Mobile World Congress Inbrics will show off their M1 Android MID. This device has WiFi, 3G or WiMax, an AMOLED touchscreen and a full-sized sliding QWERTY keyboard. It has GPS, Bluetooth, a 3 MP camera on the back and a VGA camera in the front for video conferencing. Add to that 16 GB of internal memory and a microSD slot and you've got pretty much the perfect Android VOIP-phone.
The M1 itself is worth getting excited about, but I'm also eager to see what else Inbrics has planned. This video shows the M1 as just one gadget in a large line of home & lifestyle devices. In the video we see a connected TV (possibly through a media box) a laptop, and a weird little coffee-table gadget. The idea of the video is that all of these devices will be in constant communication. When you get home with an MID full of photos, you can push them immediately over to your other devices as soon as you enter the home network.

The coffee-table device looks like a cross between a tablet PC, a digital picture frame, and a media box. It's shown accepting a credit card and ordering a movie, which then plays on the TV. This could be a wireless device that links up to the media box and allows you to push content there, or it could be Inbrics' idea of a next generation media box. Hopefully we'll get an official statement on it soon. Whatever that thing is, I want one. (Photo courtesy of SlashGear)
