Mintpad gets attainable, UK is lucky first on the list
Remember all the gushing we did about Mintpad - the cute touchscreen PMP from Mintpass? Then allow us a bit more, thrilled as we are that the little one has come several degrees closer from where it first debuted, albeit a little inconspicuously for the world to take notice of the great potential. Mintpad is now on sale in the UK, in a 4GB avatar that leaves little to be desired.
The specifications : WinCE OS, 2.9-inch LCD touchscreen display, 1.3 MP camera, 4GB internal storage, microSD slot, WiFi, USB 1.1/2.0 interface, voice recording, and support for most audio/video file formats. Plus, there is the chat facility that enables you to chat with other Mintpad-ers within a 98 feet radius, without the need to connect to the internet. The battery life is approximately 30 hours of audio or 5-6 hours of video.
Definitely the first address if you are looking for a media player cum smart digital assistant. The asking price for the device in the UK is £139, which translates to $229 on American shores.
