Hanvon to release B10 tablet, intros cheaper F10
Chinese Hanvon and its TouchPad B10 tablet is said to now be in production, with ship dates slated for the end of May in China, while Europe should get the multi-touch tablet in June. When the device comes to the US remains unknown. The device is powered by a 1.3GHz ultra-low voltage Celeron processor, and should cost the equivalent of $926 in Europe.
At the same time, Hanvon is working on a future product, the TouchPad F10, which will get a 1.6GHz Atom CPU and an electromagnetic touchscreen that requires a stylus. It will accordingly drop multi-touch support and is expected to arrive in the middle of the summer, of about July. It should be priced at much less than the B10, though actual prices have not yet been revealed. A future version may get capacitive multi-touch and an electromagnetic screen.
Both tablets have a separate mouse joystick as well. [via JKKMobile]
