Tablet Computers

Apple has released iPad, which become very popular. It was introduced as a device which will fill the niche between notebook computers and smartphones. I think it is quite successful in doing that. However, nobody will wait forever and let Apple to enjoy this niche alone. Here is a list of some notepad computers, which are capable or will be capable to create some competition to iPad.

HP Slate 500

HP Slate 500 is tablet computer, with fully functional Windows 7 (not a mobile version). That means, that you will be able to do anything, what you do with your laptop or desktop computer. You will be limited only by hard drive space. This also means, that you will be able to enjoy ‘all web’ including Adobe Flash and Video chat. HP Slate has built in web camera. You can also plug all your peripheral devices and use HP Slate 500 as regular desktop computer.

One big problem with it – Windows and HP don’t have enough touchscreen capable software, so you wan’t be able to enjoy all its features without mouse.

ASUS Eee Pad EP101TC and EP 121

Asus has announced two new Eee Pad tablets at Computex Taipei. Both are Windows based, one coming with a 10-inch screen and another with a 12-inch screen. The smaller 10-inch Eee Pad EP101TC will be superslim at just 12.2mm in thickness and weighs 675g. It will run Windows Embedded Compact 7.

The larger 12-inch Eee Pad EP121 will be more fully featured which the company claims will also serve as an e-reader. It will be powered by an unspecified Intel Core 2 Duo processor and come with Windows 7 Home Premium. Battery life should be good for 10 hours and it will come with a special docking station for character input (a virtual keyboard will also be present).

According to ViewSonic’s American team, the company will be kicking off its US tablet invasion with the ViewPad 7 in November. The 7-inch device packs an Snapdragon processor, Android 2.2, two cameras (a 3 megapixel cam on its rear and a VGA front facing one), 512MB of memory and 3G capabilities. It sounds a like the rest of the other Android tablets, but according to ViewSonic this one will most definitely have access to the Google Market and come preloaded with Google’s apps. Expected price is $479 MSRP.
