Tiny tablet PCs showcased at CES
It was only a matter of time before tablet PCs went the way of ever-shrinking portable computers. But it is still a pleasant surprise to see these mini-machines at the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Fujitsu is at CES showing off its 2.2-pound LifeBook P1510D that can run on Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC edition or Windows XP Professional.
The three-cell battery offers as much as 3.5 hours of battery life and the optional six-cell battery, which pushes the weight of the unit to 2.5 pounds, offers as much as seven hours of life.
OQO, meanwhile, announced a tablet edition of its ultraportable PC, the Model 01+. This little device weighs only 14 ounces and runs Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. It’s small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, measuring 4.9 inches x 3.4 inches x 9 inches.
This little device even offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and FireWire connectivity. Other features include a 1 GHz processor and 512M of memory.
The display is a 5-inch wide video graphic array with 800 x 480 resolution that is readable indoors and outdoors.
