NEC business tablet PC spotted

A prototype tablet PC from NEC has been spotted recently, though little information is known about the device, according to a Nikkei report (subscription required). The device will be close to a mobile Internet device (MID) in shape as it's is expected to sport a touchscreen sized at between 7 and 8 inches, but it should have functionality that is said to more closely mimic that of a full-fledged PC. No technical specs are available, however.

The mockup shown here shows Android but isn't necessarily reflective of the final design.

NEC is touting a quick boot-up time for the device, and indicates cloud computing will be part of the specs, which also indicates some form of Wi-Fi or 3G data network access will be built into the device. NEC reportedly plans to start selling the device in Japan soon, though no concrete release dates or prices have been revealed. [via CrunchGear]
