Back in September the ExoPC slate went up for pre-order. The machine was pegged to ship on October 15. If you pre-ordered and have been counting the days until yours showed up at home, you have a bit more time to wait.

The company has announced that a problem on the Pegatron assembly line with a piece of automated equipment that was using too much force to install the touchscreen and causing cracks. There are a small number of 32GB machines that didn’t get cracked screens. The machines that were ok will ship during the week of October 18.

That ExoPC Slate has been teasing us with it sexiness for a while now. If you are among the many that have a hankering for the sexy little Slate, you can now pre-order yours from the manufacturer. Before you whip out that credit card, you do need to know a few things.

The big issues with the pre-order 64GB version of the ExoPC Slate is that it is unknown if GPS will be featured on the device at this time. The maker has had issues getting GPS to work. That said the final product could have GPS, but that isn’t looking promising at this point.

You might remember that $599 8.9-inch ExoPC that we showed you last week. Well, its already been lovingly torn apart for your gawking eyes.

Just from the pictures of the tablet, you’ll easily see an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 945 chipset and 2GB worth of RAM. It also appears to have a free SIM slot on its edge. Another obvious thing is the fact that the ExoPC looks like its built pretty solid.

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?
