The Apple iPad isn’t the only giant touchscreen tablet device, you know. We’ve been hearing about the ExoPC handheld for some time, but now we’ve finally managed to find a hands-on video with the slate. Based on what we see, it looks awfully impressive.
Set to be showcased at Computex Taipei early next month, the ExoPC “slate” is a tablet device that comes powered by a full build of Windows 7. Despite using a true desktop operating system as its platform, the slate actually has a pretty good bootup time and the video playback is “flawless.”
It’ll be interesting to see how these Windows-fueled tablets will compete against the polish and marketing prowess of the iPad, but as is the case with all things electronic, competition is good. You know, especially since the HP Slate is dead in the water (for now).
They haven’t released any pricing information, but we do hear that they’ll have four different models available for purchase. The ExoPC slate will start out with a 32GB WiFi version as the entry-level unit, and then get bumped to include 32GB WiFi+3G/GPS, 64GB WiFi, and 64GB WiFi+3G/GPS.
