The Intel MID vs The Microsoft Ultra-Mobile PC

Layne Heiny, of, has some very insightful commentary on the state of the ultra-mobile pc space and how it lines up with the Intel MID. Layne doesn’t mince words when he says:

Sitting back and considering the events over the past six months, one can easily get all excited over the silly drivel about Intel MIDs and Microsoft UMPCs. Neither company is coherent. There was great hope but like all Microsoft events over the past few years – hope was a four letter word quickly morphed into profanity.

Yet, the Intel MID has momentum. While Microsoft sleeps – Intel pushes forward. This formula is a great mixture for Intel to wash away the UMPC and work with manufacturers to build competitive products to the Apple iPhone.
