I've never been too into slates, but those look HOT! I love the fact that pen input will be an option. Capacitive screens are nice for most things, but fail miserably when it comes to inking, drawing, etc. The Capacitive/Active digitizer combo is probably near-perfection.
Looking forward to see your Testvideos maybe Livesession. Both look great to me. I hope it is easy to change HD into SSD. :-)
Agreed. Capacitive/Active Digitizer!?! Finally! This is definitely going to be one to follow. I can only hope the battery life is reasonable. I'm less concerned about the CPU power. This should be interesting.
Capacitive/Active digitizer/finger touch dual input with palm rejection and a back camera is perfect for my usage. Hanvon and JKK Rock!!
The one with a digitizer looks sweet, but I wish it was PineTrail (especially with an Ion2, that'd be awesome) instead of Poulsbo.Also, someone above mentions upgrading the SSD, to see how possible that is. I'd also love to know how possible it is to upgrade the RAM, because I'd prefer at least double that amount.
I think they are just trying to copy the apple ipad.So i am sticking with the ipad.
ya, Apple invented the slate market, so i will stick with them
Yes, they are totally copying the iPad. Unfortunately they are doing it all wrong, with the Inking ability, CPU power, screen aspect ratio, USB & flash memory expansion, non-crippled OS, Flash support, value for your money, etc., etc. Will these companies ever learn ;)
Eheh, well answered Epyon
@Epyon: You sound like the million who dissed the iMac, the iPod, the iPhone and now the iPad. (History speaks for itself) And yet you forget the pivot this whole industry rests upon - it's the App Store, stupid! And the SDKs which play a part in iterative improvement of the product and promise a solid roadmap.That's where Apple will rule.As for the "non-crippled OS", "Flash support" and "value for money", all you need is a little time to change how you feel. Oh, and throw in a miserable battery run time and poor UI design, which so many seem to underestimate .. (Sigh!) will you guys ever learn ;)
@Troll Yes, because the app store has way more "useful" apps than the Windows OS /s "Poor UI design", really? You do of course realize that the UI can be altered, or completely changed right? For free. I know customization and free are a foreign concept to you guys. I'll give you the battery life argument. But then again, I would expect an enlarged PMP/MID to run longer than, you know, an actual computer. ;)
Lol@troll...I think these look excellent. A dock with keyboard would be awesome for me, as in my work I regularly need to take my computer away from my desk but be able to continue working albeit not much typing. And like so many places of work most of our non-office software is Windows only, which is why the iPad is no use to me at work. At home I'd love an iPad!
"ya, Apple invented the slate market, so i will stick with them"...really? The slate market was around before Apple made their announcement. And tablets (convertible or not) have both been around for years. It's Apple that has jumped on teh bandwagon. most of the other tablets/slates were introduced at shows running from last summer through January...before Apple had their keynote. Why can't anyone get their facts straight. Stop emotionally picking a side, and actually discuss the benefits of a product. I agree with robman84...the iPad could be a fun toy (paraphrasing), but would be of little use for me at work. Being on hte road for work, any tablet that had a full OS without sacrificing strenght/speed would be more benficial to me. Personally, I'd loe something along hte lines of the BYD prototype that Qualcomm showed at CES. Works like a tablet, but has the keyboard when you need it. Only that runs Android...which makes it a fail for me; I need a real OS, not a toy OS.
