    Netbook + Tablet = Amtek T10L

    A netblet, eh? Here’s the Amtek T10L, a device that’ll apparently be shown of at CES this year. While it’s quite possible that this would never make it to the US and/or it’s not even meant for consumer use, the specs seem to indicate that it could very well be sold as a low cost netbook-class device: Intel Atom N270 chip 512MB RAM, expandable up to 2GB Battery life… Read More

    Circuit City pawns getting Microsoft-powered Tablet PCs

    There was a time that a salesman actually needed to have enough skill, or knowledge, to sell a product — not both though. Circuit City got away from salesman way back in 2003, and now they are further enhancing their minions with some tablet PCs.

    Lenovo's X200 tablet PC gets spec'd

    Although I’m sure that it will be blown out of the water by the $200 tablet PC Mike wants to build, in the absence of any actual competitor from that sector this X200 looks pretty nice. It’s got a nice laptop-oriented Core2 with a fast FSB, 2 gigs of DDR3 RAM standard, a 12.1″ screen at 1280×800, 3xUSB, express, and card reader slots. Like its predecessors it has a… Read More

    Ripple Tablet T8100 is nice to look at, I guess

    The T8100 convertible tablet notebook from Korean-based “Ripple” is causing a minor stir today (a ripple, if you will) for its good looks. Sure, I guess it looks nice. However, I don’t quite see what all the hoopla is about because truth be told, I’m a weight man. I feel that if a notebook is light enough, it’ll naturally look pretty good. This tablet looks good… Read More

    Jensen debuts XP-running Internet tablet thing

Think of it in the category of devices like Nokia’s N810, but a little… Read More
