Toshiba JournEToshiba has announced a new MID at IFA in Germany, called the JournE. This device is a 7-inch touchscreen tablet that has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. As it is powered by an ARM-based processor, it runs the Windows CE 6.0 Pro operating system. However, judging by the pictures it seems that it runs a custom UI.

The JournE can play back sub-1080p video or full HD video via the HDMI output. It also supports a broad range of codecs (H.264, DivX, WMV). Other features include Wi-Fi (b/g), HDMI functionality in the dock, 1GB of storage (although this can be expanded via the SD card slot).

The device measures just 14mm in thickness. The JournE will hit the market for €249 when it is released in the further quarter this year. Check out some hands-on videos from Engadget and NetbookNews after the break. Read more
