Pasen MID5

Pasen MID5

Pasen are a company with a mixed reputation. They are somewhat infamous for their knockoff devices, but this one looks like a step in the right direction for the Italian based firm. Say hello to the MID5, a basic looking handset with a feature list worth taking notes for.

On their website, the company are keen to push the fact that this device offers 4.5 hours of video playback, along with 10 hours of music playback and 4 hours of internet browsing. The device does not look super attractive, but it does have a feature list as long as your arm. Some of the highlights include HDMI, huge list of codec support and 720p video, all powered by a 2300Mah battery. Check out the full shabang after the jump.
