X10 MIDLast month, late May 2010, Engadget.com had a posting about a 7 inch Windows CE v.6 tablet called the X10 MID priced at a mere $179.99.  Having owned and used a Windows CE webpad (a Viewsonic Viewpad 100) several years ago, the Engadget.com posting piqued by interest and curiosity.  I put my internet research skills (Google & Bing searching) to work and quickly learned that the device is being sold by China-based PandaWill.com

Full spec details on the X10 MID can be found on the PandaWill.com website here.  The unit no longer ships with a camera and is now in black rather than white as indicated there.

Today, an X10 MID arrived via DHL for me to review.  What follows in this posting is my unboxing report.  After I use and get comfortable with the device, I’ll post my full review in a few days.

My X10 MID arrived by international DHL.  International Air Mail shipping is included in the price, but international DHL costs only $10.00 more.  My unit (again shipped via DHL) arrived in only four [4] days.  International Air Mail can take up to several weeks, so the $10 is money well spent if you want the device quickly.

Inside the DHL envelope packaging was a single, taped, brown cardboard box.

Upon opening the brown cardboard box I found a slick box with the retail packaging.

Somewhat surprisingly, the retail packaging seems to imply that the device is only a GPS device.  Hmmm….

Inside the retail packaging, is a two [2] layered white box.  The top layer contains the X10 MID itself.

The X10 MID is in a cushioned envelope and has a plastic protector over the display.

Here’s the device taken out of the envelope and with the protector removed from the display.  I’ll include lots more pictures of it turned-on in my upcoming review.

The bottom compartment of the white box contains all the cables and accessories.

The accessories include an AC/DC power supply, an adapter for U.S. AC power plugs, a car DC Power supply, ear buds and a USB sync cable.

One more included accessory is a universal car holder for the device.  I didn’t expect this holder, but it makes sense given that the device seems to be primarily targeted as a GPS device.

The universal car holder box contains the three [3] pieces below.

Somewhat surprisingly, no manual or user guide is included with the device.  In fact, there are no instructions or paperwork of any kind included.  However, not shown is a 2GB MicroSD card that was included and already in the appropriate slot of the device.

I’ll have more pictures and hopefully a video posted in a few days when I complete the review.  While you’re waiting for my review, there’s a video here with the device in operation.  Until then….

    Rich, I look forward to your review. I actually thought about buying one of these but thought the screen would be too small for reading.
