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.
