SmartQ V3 unboxing

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

The SmartQ V3 arrived today, a MID that shares most of it’s features with the SmartQ V5, but with a lower price tag (only $109.99/€82.55 at AllPMP). SmartQ dropped the Bluetooth and horrible Windows CE on this device, but you still get a neat little MID with a 4.3″ 800×480 touchscreen, USB On-The-Go, full SD-card slot, HDMI output, 1080p video decoding and ofcourse both Linux and Android as operating systems. Expect a review within a few days. Until then, enjoy the unboxing video:

SmartQ 7 review

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

For those who don’t know: the SmartQ devices are cheap MIDs (Mobile Internet Devices), capable of running Linux and a slew of other operating systems, like Windows CE and Android. They’re used as internet tablets, eBook/comic book readers and much more. After my good experiences with the SmartQ 5, I was curious if it’s bigger brother would be worth the $211.02/€145.72. Would it just be a bigger SmartQ 5 or does it bring anything new to the table? With the SmartQ V7 already being available, the review might be a bit late, but the two devices are mostly similar. So read to see if the SmartQ 7 is worth your hard earned pennies.
