Just about everything that people hated on the iPad, almost all the glaring disadvantages, finally resolved! The best of everything? In a product that, unlike the Courier project, will be available for purchase in March or even now, for the hurried. Meet the ExoPC Slate:
Now, let's see: with an 8.9 ? LCD screen (1024 × 600 pixels) with multi-touch support, a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD expandable via SD cards, ExoPC will be sold with Windows 7 Pro with a customized interface (which means full compatibility with Flash in the browser of your choice).
Want more? It also features three USB ports, a VGA output, 802.11b / g and 3G (CDMA / SIM) Wi-Fi connectivity and a 1.3 megapixel webcam. The battery (which can be changed on-the-go) has autonomy of up to four hours and the gadget has a virtual keyboard.
All of this costs just $ 600 the same price as the 32GB iPad. Those who are not holding on and want one immediately will only have to shell out $ 180 more, but they will also have to deal with the lack of multi-touch and 3G support in current prototypes, in addition to having a battery that lasts only two hours. .
Of course, comparatively, the ExoPC is a little heavier and somewhat thicker than an iPad, in addition to having a smaller screen that does not have LED lighting or IPS technology not to mention the operating system, but I imagine the additional functionality will pay off.
Running Flash and having USB ports make it a iPad-killer, RIGHT?
