CES 2010 - more "Slates" emerge
As I commented yesterday, one of the big trends of CES has been tablet PCs,as every manufacturer joins the rush to pip (if you’ll excuse the pun) Apple to the Slate post.
As well as the HP Slate that I mentioned previously, there’s been a slew of new devices hoping to make the most of touchscreen tech to produce, carry-anywhere tablet PCs.
Dell has also outed a 5inch touchscreen slate concept that looks more like a massive iPhone than a scaled-down notebook. Whether it has a 3G chip, we’ll have to wait and see.
Elsewhere, Lenovo made an ingenious laptop/tablet, named the Lenovo U1. It features two processors and runs full Windows 7, but the best bit is that you can detach the screen and carry it around as a full multitouch tablet.Nice.
And there’s more! Tablets specifically designed to be home “command centres” also featured at the show, most notably hubs the Android-powered Vega and the Sony Dash.
Looks like Apple has some tough acts to follow – what do you think the iSlate will have over the competition? And are you tempted by the new tablet trend? Let us know below…
