This is a nice-looking homebrew tablet created by “Slampana” just for fun. It may not be as slick in the UI department as the iPad (it’s poor, unadorned Windows 7), but it’s a nice-looking piece of hardware and I like that screen.

A little more information but not a lot) is available at the project website. Here are the specs:

- Atom Z530 Processor (1.6GHz) – GMA 500
- 40GB SSD
- 13.4″ LED-backlit LCD
- Resistive Touch Screen
- Wireless 802.11 g/b/n
- Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
- Ports: 2 USB, Headphone Jack, Mic Input, Power
- Carbon Fiber Casing
- Accelerometer
- Built-In Speakers
- Dimensions 14.125″ x 8.875″ x .75″
- Weight 3.2lbs

A bit heavy, but if you got a nice little stand for it, it would make a really solid portable media tablet.
