Branding for tablets remains unannounced
Elitegroup Computer Systems, a Taiwan-based ODM, has introduced several new Oak Trail-based tablets this week at CeBIT. A 10.1-inch variant can be built with 1366x768 or 1024x600 resolution, while battery life is claimed to reach over six hours. Other configuration options for the Windows 7 tablet includes 16GB or 32GB SSDs, a 120GB hard drive, and 1GB to 2GB of RAM.
The company is also previewing a seven-inch variant, also based on Intel's Atom Z670 Lincroft chipset. The samller device packs a 1024x600 touchscreen, 1GB of RAM and dual cameras. Aside from Windows 7, the device is also said to be capable of running MeeGo or Android 3.0, according to pictures posted by UMPCPortal.
Both tablets are expected to arrive in the spring, though ECS has yet to announce which brands the devices will be sold under. Other Oak Trail-based options will include Samsung's Sliding PC 7, Fujitsu's Stylistic Q550 and Lenovo's IdeaPad Slate, among others.
