BenQ is shaking things up a bit with some news about their first Mobile Internet Device (MID) at the Mobile World Congress. Focus on this round of news has to do with the UI. Looks like users will be able to work with their screens with touch and also a little shaking:
The MID’s distinctive user interface was meticulously designed to bring an intuitive user experience to consumers. The startup icons on the desktop flip like a vertical window blind as you glide a finger across the device’s 4.8-inch touch screen. Users can simply shake their MIDs to minimize open windows as thumbnails on the desktop for more convenience and control. This reduces common errors that occur when users point to small icons on touch screens and eliminates the repetitive action of minimizing and maximizing the windows.
I’m sure comparisons to the Etch-a-Sketch will be coming soon.
Here’s a link to the full press release.
