  • New laptop/tablet begs to become a carputer

    Check out this new laptop/tablet.
    More info and Gallery here:

    It's not available yet, but it looks like it would be a perfect carpc.

    9.4" x 7" x 1.4" for 2 lbs (with keyboard)
    ARM Texas Instruments OMAP3 chip
    1024x600 8.9'' screen
    Storage: 8GB micro SD card
    Wifi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth
    3-dimensional accelerometer
    Speakers, micro and headphone
    6 USB 2.0 (3 internal, 2 external, 1 mini)
    10h to 15 hours of battery life

    it has two batteries, one in the tablet, and another in the keyboard, which is detachable. it also has two internal usb ports, so you can avoid extra things sticking out the side of it. It has its own touchscreen interface which it reveals after you un-dock it. It has no moving parts, and future versions will boast GPS and 3G mobile broadband.

    Anyone wanna preorder it and show the rest of us how easy/difficult this thing can be turned into a decent carputer?

    I wouldn't preorder one until they have more than 3D renderings on their website.
    I would want to see actual photos.
    Until someone orders and receives one, it will be vaporware.

    Personally, I don't think it's all that great. Suitable for a vehicle, yeah. But not the bees knees.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
