Canadian startup ExoPC starts taking pre-orders for its upcoming 11.6" Windows 7 tablet. The device has a 1366 x 768 capacitive multitouch screen and features the Intel Atom N450 (1.66GHz) processor, 2GB DDR2 memory, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, three USB 2.0 ports, mini HDMI port, 1.3MP webcam, and a SDHC memory card reader.
Battery life is said to be up to four hours and storage is provided by SanDisk's P4 mini-SSD which provides transfer speeds of up to 160MB/s. A 32GB model is offered for CAD $649 (approx. $625 / €485) while the 64GB edition costs CAD $749 (about $722 / €560).
In a very unfortunate explanation, the company also announced that the 64GB might not feature a GPS radio. "We were not able to have it working on the prototype and we do not have enough time to change the provider. So, if we are not able to have it working by the 15th of September, the 64GB will come with no GPS. Otherwise we will keep it in the final units."
Nevertheless, both models will feature "up to" 160MB/s fast SanDisk P4 mini-SSDs and up to four hours of battery life. According to a recent hands-on review by Engadget, the tablet fits right in between the 12.1-inch Fusion Garage JooJoo and the first generation 9.7-inch Apple iPad.
