Cregle Penbook Win7 tablet makes an appearance

Cregle took this tablet in a different direction from most Win7 machines. It's based on an 1.6 GHz Atom CPU, yes, but the 10" touchscreen isn't resistive or capacitive; it it has an active digitizer that requires a pen.  It comes with 1GB RAM, Wifi/Bluetooth, a SD card slot, 2 USB ports, speakers, mike, headphone jack, but it lacks cameras.

Cregle have posted a couple videos on Youtube which shows off a tablet friendly menu that Cregle designed. I have to say that I find the interface intriguing.  There's also several different note-taking and sketchpad demos in the video that show some surprising integration.

There's no word yet on the price or release date, but Cregle are taking orders for samples.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
