If you don’t know, I’m a netbook guy. I go about my daily tasks all over the metro carrying my trusty Asus Eee with me, and when I find a nice (hopefully free) wifi hotspot, I sit down, grab a mug of hot coffee, and work away. But if I’m lazy to bring my netbook with me (admit it, even netbooks CAN get cumbersome at times), I have my trusty Nokia E63 always in my pocket, so if I need to make a quick Skype call, update Twitter, or check what my friends are up to in Facebook, it can suffice for my needs.
That said, I’ve never really gotten into Mobile Internet Devices, or MIDs. I honestly don’t see the need to open up a phone-sized device running full Windows XP to do the same tasks I can easily do on my phone (or iPod touch for some people).
However, checking out the video below can actually explain the appeal of MIDs to some people. I’m actually interested to try out MIDs in the near future, but I’ll stick to my phone and netbook for the time being.
