This netbook thinks it’s a phone
This new 10″ tablet convertible showed up in China last week. It’s an example of how Shanzhai is moving beyond cloning into doing mashups that result in novel new products.
This pretty thing is running on a 1.66Ghz Atom CPU with a 10″ (1026×600) screen, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, a ‘red cap’ trackpoint, HDMI out, a SD card slot, and 3 USB ports. Do you see the dot to the side of the screen? It’s an optical mouse, which suggests that this isn’t a touch screen.
There’s no word on availability or the OS version, but the price is supposed to be around 1600 Yuan (about $243 USD).
I really hope this has a touchscreen. I couldn’t imagine buying a 10″ tablet that didn’t have one. What a waste.
