ExoPC tablet delayed again due to manufacturing glitch

updated 08:55 am EDT, Mon October 4, 2010

First run of 100 due to ship October 18

Delivery of the ExoPC Slate has been delayed again, according to a lengthy update on the company's forum by ExoPC's CTO and Chairman Jean-Baptiste Martinoli. ExoPC received a number of units last week and discovered damage to the touchscreen caused by a flaw in the manufacturing process. Although the assembly process has been tweaked to correct the problem, delivery of the first production run of the ExoPC Slate has been pushed back to the first week of November. A small number of the 32GB models will be shipped the week of October 18.

ExoPC will have a limited number of tablets assembled using a more expensive method to meet its latest promised delivery date of October 15. These will be sent to the first one hundred customers that preordered the 32GB model. Delivery of the 64GB version of the ExoPC Slate has been pushed back to the first week of November because of issues with the memory supplier. Additional 32GB units will also ship at that time.

The ExoPC was announced in February of this year with delivery targeted for March. Problems in the production chain have pushed the delivery date back repeatedly. Problems with the chipmaker selected to provide GPS for the device forced the company to eliminate that feature altogether.
