|With multitouch, a tablet-enable build of Windows 7 (premium,) 2GB RAM, a 900gm weight and good entry level price, the Nav 9 helps to bring true, productive tablet PCs to the masses. Our only concern is the very small battery which we estimate to be worth up to a maximum of only 2.5 hours. An extended battery (about 150% capacity) will bring the capacity up to around 4 hours and at %50, is recommended because it's a custom install. Included carrying case and car charger rounds off a nice package. Note: 3G retro-fit should be possible with a PCI-Express mini module. (Unconfirmed) Question remains about removable battery. (We suspect not.) |
Options exist for 32, 64 and 128GB SSD.

|Kupa X11, 10.1 inch, 1019 grams (2.25 lbs)|
The Kupa X11 comes with a multitouch screen and an active digitizer which is pressure sensitive. It is built on Intel's Oak Trail platform sporting a 1.5GHz Processor and packs 2GB of RAM. Battery life is promised to be about 10hrs.
|Gigabyte S1081, 10.1 inch, 895 grams (1.97 lbs)|
|Dell Latitude ST, 10.1 inch, 816 grams (1.8 lbs)|
With a focus on business, the Latitude ST offers a hi-resolution screen and long battery life along with basic connectivity options with full-size ports. The casing is rubberised for grip. Capcative and Digitiser inpout layers are included. The optional docking station adds Gigabit Ethernet and comes with a keyboard. The 'Oaktrail' Z670 isn't a powerful CPU so multi-tasking will be limited. If the SSD is fast, it will help improve Windows 7 performance, otherwise it could feel quite sluggish.
|Motion Computing CL900, 10.1 inch, 950 grams (2.09 lbs)|
The ruggedised CL900 comes in with capacative and digitiser input layers along battery life for a great price. Motion Computing have also put together a wide range of accessories in including a unique docking station making this worth a look at.
|MSI Windpad 110W (232G), 10.1 inch, 850 grams (1.87 lbs)|
The 110W has the 1280x800 screen and integrated mouse pointer, 32GB SSD, HD decoder (via the 6250M graphics,) 2GB of RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium - A well balanced feature set for a mobile PC. With a 2-cell battery we're probably looking at 30-40Wh of power (unconfirmed) which is a 3-5hr usage time. If the Windpad includes some nice accessories (we are assuming the docking port is still included) it could make quite a well balanced product. And good value too.
|Gigabyte S1080, 10.1 inch, 895 grams (1.97 lbs)|
|Viewsonic Viewpad 10pro, 10.1 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)|
|Hanvon Touchpad B10, 10.1 inch, 960 grams (2.12 lbs)|
|Acer Iconia Tab W500, 10.1 inch, 970 grams (2.14 lbs)|
In total, the tablet and dock solution weighs over 1.5kg which, for a solution with a 36Whr battery (and 3-4hrs usage) isn't much but as a hot-desking / round-the-house solution, the Acer Iconia Tab could perform well.
|Fujitsu Stylistic Q550, 10.1 inch, 870 grams (1.92 lbs)|
