PCD MID650

Another day, another Android MID. At least, that's kind of what it feels like. And here's the MID650 from PCD (PCDphones.com), whom we mainly know as the keeper of Verizon software upgrades. This is just a prototype, so you can't buy it anywhere, and it had a power issue at the time, so we didn't actually get to see Android running on it. But what we have here is a 5-inch TFT touchscreen at 800x480. It'll have 3G radio (this one had the GSM variety), WiFi, GPS, MicroSD, a 2MP camera and FM radio.

PCD's vice president of advanced devices, Joe Cufari, told us that it should see some upgraded features when it goes into production, namely that the 5-inch screen should became a 7-inch screen, and Android 1.5 would be swapped out for 2.0 or so.

We're not the world's biggest fans of mobile Internet devices, but this one really did feel pretty good in the hand. Dimensions were 4.6 wide by 3 inches tall by 0.7 inches deep.

A few more pics after the break.

Hands-on with the PCD MID650

The reason we buy smartphones is for the internet buying a slightly larger device to do the same thing is not worth it me I'd rather get an Android netbook if it ever came out.
