MID = Mobile Internet Device. Some ultra-mobile PCs are inappropriately called an MID (even though a tiny PC is a mobile device that can get you on the Internet). As smartphone browsers become more powerful, smartphones are essentially turning into MIDs. Many smartphones now have built-in Wi-Fi. The days of the Nokia MID (such as the N810 and N850) may be numbered.
