X2 computing names its tablet the iTablet

Posted in Tablet PC by Shane McGlaun on February 5th, 2010

For a long time many geeks would have bet money that Apple would call its long anticipated tablet computer the iTablet. When the device surfaced as the iPad, I am sure there were more than a few geeks surprised by the name choice.

A company called X2 in the UK has decided if Apple wasn’t going to use the name, it would. The firm has unveiled the iTablet today running Windows 7. The machine uses a 1.6GHz Intel processor and has 250GB of storage space.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on January 31st, 2010

This 8.9-inch multitouch tablet looks a lot like another recently announced 9.7 multitouch tablet. But this one packs some different stuff inside, including full browser support with flash thanks to Windows 7 on an Atom N270 at 1.6GHz, with 2GB of DDR2 memory and a 32GB SSD with SD expansion.

It may not give you the speedy performance of the iPad, but it will be a lot more functional. Battery life is four hours and is user-replaceable. The $599 price is the same as the 32GB iPad. Expect it to be available in March. It still has a large bezel, but what are you gonna do?

Most of us will likely still wait a few days to see what Apple’s has, but here’s a look at what this $630 tablet offers. It does look nice.

Some specs include an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard disk, 10.2-inch display at 1024 x 600 resolution, 3000mAh lithium-ion battery, 1.3 megapixel webcam, Wi-Fi and Windows 7. Is it an Apple tablet killer? Doubt it, but we will know soon.

Reflex LCD is a pressure-sensitive, flexible plastic which doesn’t require any juice at all to keep whatever is written on it displayed and it uses just watch battery to clear the screen. The battery can execute more than 50,000 erase cycles before running out.
