The entry level 10.4” TTAB-910E can be configured with an Intel Celeron M processor LV 733 MHz with 256KB L2 cache. A unique security system is integrated with the TTAB-A12D to limit unauthorized access the new Tatung tablets through Omni Pass AP biometric fingerprint recognition.
For communications, both models feature WLAN 802.11 a/b/g or b/g via Mini PCI; a 56K V.92 Modem card; and IrDA on the motherboard.

The TTAB-A12D can be rotated 90 degrees by using the optional docking station. It allows users to view the tablet in portrait or landscape format. When the tablet is rotated on the cradle, the on-screen image also automatically rotates, and it can be inclined for four different viewing angles.
