DigitalRise X9 Tablet Out of China Comes a Decent 10.2-inch tablet, Atom N270 processor, Windows 7
HP, the X9 tablet looks like it could be excellent. Coming from a
no-name Chinese company called DigitalRise, it has a big screen and
decent specs for a tablet, and looks like it meets all the requirements
you'd want in one.
Before the news of the X9 tablet hit the web, DigitalRise's only cla
im to fame was an iPhone clone called the d718i that some in the tech
blogosphere said improved on Apple's well-known design. As for the X9,
it's got a large 10.2-inch multi touch screen, an Intel Atom N270
processor thats clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of DDR2 memory, and comes with
160GB of HDD space. Graphics are integrated, and the whole thing is
running Windows 7.
It will also have a high defination 1.3-megapixel webcam, and WiFi,
Bluetooth and 3G connectivity. It will even come preloaded with Nintendo
NES emulation software, which probably isn't legal but a pretty nice
feature you'd never get from an Apple tablet, but maybe a Nokia one.
The screen will have a resolution of 1024 x 600 and the whole device is
about 24.7mm thick. It's a decent tablet alright, almost makes you
wonder if a well-known manufacturer canceled an OEM order for a bunch of
tablets and DigitalRise is selling it as their own.
However, it's a great current generation tablet, and with sources
within Apple saying that the iTablet/iSlate/iWhatever will change the
game of tablets, this X9 could look like a dinosaur after Apple unveils
their tablet next week. For interested parties, the X9 is shipping from
Chinese tech importers for a price of $780, but high demand has forced a
two week waiting period on some sites.
