CES 2008: Exploring the Land of MIDs at Intel’s Booth

Seirra and I headed into the Intel booth first thing this mornign to look for, yep, you guessed it, Mobile Internet Devices. What did we discover? Quite a few of them. Sierra has a one on one interview set up for tomorrow which should yield some good info, but in the meantime here is a range of pictures. (BTW, Intel needs to get rid of the blue lighting on everything. It makes pictures almost impossible to take.)

The mouse or scroll button the right of the picture below on the Toshiba MID reads optically.
