UMPCPortal is reporting that GigaByte has set pricing and availability(at least in Taiwan) details on the M528 MID. The M528 will debut at $750, which if you ask me is still way to high for the MID space. That price does include a 3G option so you’ll need a contract with a carrier. This MID is scheduled to roll out in late July, again in Taiwan.
Again, I think $750 is too high for a device in this space. There’s confusion reigning about MIDs anyway and if the manufacturers don’t find a way to bring these in at a sub-$500 price point, I’m not sure how they will fare in a market of ultra-net-mini-sub-low-cost devices. There’s also that iPhone 3G thing at $199.
