Mobile Internet terminal refers to the terminal equipment that accesses the Internet through wireless network technology. Its main function is to access the Internet by mobile, so it is very dependent on various networks. Mobile Internet terminal equipment configuration is sufficient, cost-effective mobile Internet terminal is the biggest advantage. In the mobile Internet era, the terminal has become one of the key points in the development of mobile Internet. Around the demand of the development of mobile Internet, the development of terminal in the mobile Internet era presents three obvious trends.

Since the concept of MID was put forward, it has been regarded as a revolutionary and innovative product in the industry. Its core design idea is to seamlessly connect mobile multimedia with the Internet. Intel specifically defined it as a 5 to 7 inch product that is slightly larger than PPC, smartphone screens and slightly smaller than UMPC inches, and this would be a completely new mobile product market.
All products that conform to the MID standard will not have keyboard, but still realize multimedia application through touch screen. In terms of network access, MID will abandon GPRSCDMA connection and introduce 802.11X (a/b/g/n), and will integrate WiMAX in the future.
But in a broader sense, we can also see MID products as representative of the future of ultra-mobile computers, that is, small PCs with a screen size of less than 10 inches (including 10 inches) can be classified as MID products.
