The 2009 Broadband show in Taipei brings a surprisingly interesting development for home theater enthusiasts.  MTube, more commonly associated with netbooks in recent months, displayed a mobile internet device (MID) that’s not only capable of streaming video to an HDTV, but from an HDTV as well.

The MTube MID is based on the much beloved Android architecture, and features capacitive touch screen functionality.  Sending an image, a photo album or a full video to a television is a drag and drop function.  Simply grab the file, drag it across the MID’s 7.6 inch OLED screen, and drop it on the designated TV icon.  No information has been given yet regarding the picture quality the MID is able to stream.

MTube’s MID can also stream video from your TV to the device itself.  The 800x400 resolution won’t blow any minds, but the streaming ability could make running for a sandwich while watching a movie or sporting event a whole lot less painful. The MTube MID is still in development, so a release date and estimated price are still up in the air.
