T10L Tablet from Amtek. Hints of low-cost.

Posted on 05 December 2008 by

T10L As I was browsing the CES exhibitor list late last night a came across the T10L tablet device. I didn’t have time to post about it so I pinged it across to the guys at GottaBeMobile who have put the details up on a post.

  • CPU: Atom N270
  • Chipset: 945GSE
  • Memory: 2GB max
  • Display: 10.2″ XGA (1024 x 600), LCD, 200 nits
  • Storage: 80GB HDD
  • Input: Touch screen
  • Camera: 1.3 mp
  • Audio: Built in Stereo Speaker*2(High Quality)
  • Wireless: Wireless 3945 B/G Network Connection(Mini-PCle)
  • Ports: 3 USB 2.0, 1 PC card, 1 D-Sub 15 Monitor out, 1 ethernet, headphone, mic
  • Weight: 2.6 lbs

As you can see, it’s based around Intel’s low cost platform. At just over an inch thick and at 2.6lbs, its nicely proportioned too. Could this be another cheap Vesa-mount PC or a Grab and Go dockable desktop? I see quite some potential for devices like these if they can be slimmed down a bit. Under 1KG and 20mm think with 5 hours battery and a $400 price tag (why not – its a netbook with a touch layer added and the keyboard removed!) would make it very attractive portable browser and e-book reader and, given a good range of docks and mounts could ignite a consumer slate market. The netbook platform and 200 nits brightness figure really hints of low-cost to me so i’ll be interested to see who picks this up.

We’ll get this one in the DB later today if we can gather all the info. Amtek specification page is here.

    Add bluetooth to enable easy use of an external keyboard and you might be on to something with this device. I always preferred this layout over the standard mini notbook design.

    Hopefully it’ll get to market at a reasonable price in the near future.

    And besides its halved HDD size just how is it different from my Gigabyte M912M, cost me $600 shipped from overseas?

    While I’d prefer 1024×800, this is still nice. If it’s at the price Chippy hopes for, I would seriously consider getting one :)

    I’ve always wanted a light-weight tabled for couch-surfing, but it’s not something I’m willing to be a big spender on.

    This is exactly the product I keep wishing people would make.

    Sadly, it is irrelevant at 20mm thick.

    10mm and I’ll buy 3 of them at 3x the price and spread them around my home for random browsing, etc. 20mm … useless.
