Benq S6. First 3G MID Launches In Italy

BenQ's S6 has finally launched in Italy, and it surely deserves all the excitement surrounding it since this is the first Atom-based MID to roll out in the Western world, The Atom-based MID impresses with built-in 3G capabilities, 512MB of RAM, a 2GB SSD, 4.8-inch 800 x 480 resolution display, WiFi / Bluetooth 2.0 and -- just to really pound the message home / incite jealously -- 7.2Mbps HSDPA. The current asking price sits at €429 ($626), and while the value proposition may be debatable, the amount of possibilities packed into a frame this small (6.2- x 3.5- x 0.86-inches) definitely isn't.

Atom-based MID to roll out in the Western world, accompanied by the following features :-
  • Intel Atom UL11L 800MHz processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 2GB SSD
  • 4.8" 800 ? 480 262k color TFT touch screen
  • Linux Midinux operating system
  • Connectivity: HSDPA 7.2/Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 2.0
  • microSD memory card slot

It will cost you 429 Euros to bring this puppy home, and will likely prove itself to be a fierce competitor to the Archos 5G.

Obviously the price range is not the same side and keyboard sticks is different.
Also there is talk of a price to be between 400 and 500 euros.
