X10 MID reviewed by Mobility Site

This is a 7" tablet running Windows CE. Based on their review I'm going to pass. It currently has a huge flaw: you can't install apps. It also doesn't come with a reading app.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
