TabletKiosk is a mobile products developer which seems to fly under the radar most of the time. It has a new product out now though which is turning heads for its slate form factor featuring both pen and touch screen input.
The Sahara Slate PC i440D Tablet PC, priced at around $2,295 for the default configuration, runs either Windows XP Tablet Edition or Vista Business operating systems. The touch screen input is based upon resistive touch technology, said TabletKiosk, that responds to contact from a finger, gloved hand or stylus. It does not require direct skin convergence to react. There’s also a biometric fingerprint reader, 12.1-inch wide angle display and built-in 802.11 wireless networking.
