Hi Andy,

The Internet Tablet 900 looks like a very interesting device, especially with, reportedly, 3G via T-Mobile.

But I really wonder whether MIDs will succeed as a product category or whether they are too "in between" a smartphone and a netbook.

Also, Maemo is an OS for geeks. And although it has a friendly shell, the number of applications pales in comparison to other operating systems. Will consumers see the 900 as an overly big phone, a too-small computer with an exotic OS, or will they accept and embrace the product for what it is?

Even Windows-based MIDs haven't succeeded. My best guess -- the smartphone and the netbook will be the devices of choice for most people....unless there's some killer app that can only be best used on a MID.
