A not that known Chinese company called Hanvon wants to join the tablet PC craze. They apparently already have an ebook-reading device, but that’s obviously not enough. Hence they’re launching a product called Touchpad, which rocks multi-touch support, while at the same time supports handwritten input.
Specs wise, we’re talking about a Windows 7 machine with a 10.1-inch capacitive LED backlight panel with resolution of up to 1024×600 pixels. Moreover, there’s WiFi connectivity on board, 250 or 320 GB hard drive, 2GB RAM, Bluetooth, HDMI out, 1.3-megapixel camera, USB 2.0, SD card reader, some CULV CPU (we’re not sure which one), and a 4800 mAh Li-Polymer battery.
All this is packed in a 18mm-think “furnace black casing” that’s made out of aluminum alloy and which weighs 960 grams.
You’re probably asking when the Touchpad will be released and where I can get it. Unfortunately, we don’t have that information as Hanvon hasn’t mentioned it in their press release. As soon as we hear something new, you’ll be the first to know. Stay tuned…
