The ExoPC Slate tablet PC is slated to go head-to-head with Apple's recently announced 9.7-inch iPad. The 8.9-inch device has Flash support and runs on Windows 7, however, for a more complete web browsing capability. There is a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU along with 2GB of RAM, while storage comes from a 32GB solid state drive and SD memory cards.
Intel's integrated GMA950 graphics processor handles the video processing on the 1024x600 resolution screen. Wi-Fi is built-in, along with a Bluetooth and Ethernet connection. A 1.3-megapixel camera captures photos and videos, and there are three USB ports, a VGA output and a SIM card slot for connecting to 3G data networks. The battery is rated at four hours. A virtual keyboard, app support and e-book compatibility round out the known features of the device.
When the ExoPC Slate launches sometime in March, its $599 price tag will match that of the 32GB iPad. [viaEngadget]
