HP tx1000 Vista Tablet

HP has inadvertently pre-announced an upcoming tablet notebook dubbed the tx1000 (pictured). Discovered through the combination of an online search as well as a Windows Vista promotional kit provided by Microsoft, the 12-inch computer will be a showcase for the new operating system's features and should have a mini-remote for controlling Vista Home Premium's media center functions as well as dual sets of headphone jacks and microphones for sharing audio with friends. The tablet's owner can selectively remove the optical drive as well and should save as much as 0.37 pounds of traveling weight when CDs and DVDs become unnecessary. Options will also exist for a fingerprint reader, touchscreen input, and mobile cellular broadband. Many of these features are likely to be reserved for a high-end tx1002 model while the basic tx1001 goes without.

Also part of the Microsoft press package is confirmation of the highly anticipated "Crossfire" touchscreen all-in-one desktop being prepared to challenge the iMac. The system will be officially titled the HP TouchSmart PC and is being positioned by Microsoft as the definitive Vista platform. It and the tx1000 series are likely to be revealed at CES and may be shipped by the January 30th Vista introduction. [Via SlashGear]
