Why not, i like such devices. Hope to see a lot of them in the EU. With Win7 must be fun.

But the specs are nothing new. I would give Gooouri a try :)

but maybe the will be cheaper

Sorry for the offtopic, JKK, but will try to put 3G module into Archos internet tablet (maybe into 20mm thick HDD version)?

Wow. The cooorui tablet looks pretty sexy. Put an intel version of Maemo on it, and that'd be an amazing product!

What _I_ really need is a device for note taking, that is lightweight and capable of annotating pdfs and surfing the web (prefereably via WLAN, supporting umts sticks in case i may at some point actually need it mobile). And when I say annotating, I mean annotating and not those workarounds with overlays used by most GPL programs :-(

The thing just is... My main work would be about A4-formatted scripts for university and they are a real pain to read on a 10" screen, at least at 1024x600 (this leaves to few pixels for a 10-12pt font on A4-Paper)

Though such a device would be usefull for power point based scripts, where the lecturer didn't go through the trouble of properly handling animations/overblending effects so they are sensibly printable...

The other point is, as i just noticed again... When I'm learning for an exam, I'll regularily stumble upon basics, i can't exactly remember, but while wandering around or sitting on the sofa, I'll rather skip looking it up than fetching my notebook...

Then again, beyond 1kg such a device would be a pain, when walking while learning and below 4h battery run time it would be completely useless at university -- and if its 4 hours i'd feel the need for a spare battery and an external charging station.

Not to mention I'd like it to be fanless.

This is why i hope for the smartbook cathegory (``always on'' concept, propably a 3qi screen, low power consumtion, thus little waste heat).

Sure, but there were times, people said that about computers on the whole. Looking at my personal mountains of university notes, i keep for reference, I yearn for a long-battery-life-big-screen-tablet.

My eee 900ha is crazy hot, I am using it more like a nettop than a netbook. Don't get me wrong I use it more than my Desktop but it just wouldn't cut it in all mobile usage. I am eying a ARM cortex a9 MID.

i heard Windows 7 has some graphic cards issues, and if you combine it with this Asian :) crap... uhh. A year ago a friend of mine had an asian tablet, it was...awful, the screen was messy.

Asians like these touchscreen tablets because the handwriting recognition capability allows them to enter non-Roman alphabet characters more easily than phonetic IME software. Also, they arrange data in diagrams/flowcharts that don't conform to tables and outline formats. It's all about pattern recognition. Asians use a greater variety of patterns than Westerners do.

Jkk, This is an offtop question but are you planning to review any android devices in near future? It would be interesting to hear your opinion about them. As always, loving your videos!!! Thanks!

Big deal!! But it should fit into my budget. Windows 7 is surely an added flavor.
