ExoPC Slate


$600.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Same thinness and weight as the iPad. VGA webcam. Great build quality.

The Cons:Poor battery life next to the iPad - 3-5 hours under heavy use. Runs Windows 7, meaning programs are not touch optimized. Display is inferior to that on the iPad - reflective and a TN matrix with poor viewing angles.

The ExoPC Slate is a multi-touch screen portable tablet PC intended for release in March 2010. The system is entirely dependent on user interaction with the touchscreen and does not use any external, physical interface devices; a virtual keyboard is used when typing is necessary, and multiple touch inputs are used for everything else.

The system intends to provide an uncompromised web experience by having similar computer specifications as netbooks and some lower end laptop computers. The device is capable of web browsing, including flash, and multiple apps and programs including internet radio, music, video, and e-book reading. The system is lightweight, portable, and is meant to be a complementary addition to existing computer products instead of a direct replacement of a home computer or laptop. The multi-touch display is 8.9 inches and takes up the majority of the system's space. The device has a battery life time of roughly 4 hours with a single charge.
