NEC announced [JP] the so-called LaVie Touch for the Japanese market today, a tablet with two rather special features: it’s powered by Windows 7 Home Premium, and it comes with a total of three hardware add-ons out of the box: a mix between stand and DVD-drive (dubbed “Multistation”), a wireless mouse, and a wireless keyboard.
In other words, it won’t be possible to purchase the tablet by itself.
Here are its main specs:
- 10.1-inch IPS LCD panel with 1,280×800 resolution
- Windows 7 Home Premium OS (SP1, 32bit)
- Office Home and Business 2010
- ExTouch UI
- Atom Z670 (1.50GHz) CPU
- Intel SM35 Express chip set
- 2GB memory
- 64GB SSD
- IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
- Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
- 1.3MP camera
- ports: 2xUSB, HDMI, SDHC
- 10.6 hours battery life
- size: 263×183×15.8mm, weight: 729g
NEC plans to roll out the LaVie Touch in Japan next month (price including the add-ons: US$1,230).
