The debate between tablet and netbook is still raging even though they clearly have different usage scenarios. The Jumper JK01-TT runs Windows 7 and ships with a wireless keyboard, mouse, and stand. The iPad has its phone OS and well, doesn’t offer desktop experience with its optional keyboard dock.
The Jumper JK01-TT comes with a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel multitouch display, 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 250G hard drive, 2MP webcam, and 802.11b/g WiFi and 3G. For connectivity it out does the iPad with its, 3 USB ports, a 4-in-1 flash card reader and apparently has a VGA/HDMI combination output. Its battery is less then desirable at only 3000mAh battery. The JK01-TT’s dimensions are 11.4″ x 5.9″ x 0.8″ and weighs 2.6 pounds.
If this tablet actually has an HDMI Port on an N450 processor I would be surprised, as it would be the only N450 on the market that does so. The Jumper JK01-TT is actually on sale at Ownta.com for $671.65.
First we got to fiddle with it at CeBIT, then we saw a boatload of press images (You may notice that’s a picture of the 1015PE up there – don’t fret, the two models look identical), and now the Eee PC 1015P has taken an important step to becoming a reality – it’s gone through the FCC.
The 1015P is part of the Eee PC Seashell series, features a really nice big trackpad, chiclet keyboard, Atom N450 processor (anybody want to take bets on how long until it gets updated with an N455?), that svelte Seashell chassis, and a touted 14 hour battery life.
Still no official word on when this model will hit, but, for the US at least, it can’t be long now!
The Eee PC T101H is a 10 inch convertible tablet-style netbook from Asus. The company first showed a demo of the netbook at CES in January, 2009 but it has yet to hit the streets. And now Netbook News.de is reporting that Asus plans to show off a revamped model at CES 2010. The new model could be available as soon as Q1, 2010.
This will be the second convertible tablet from Asus. The first was the Eee PC T91, which has an 8.9 inch display. But that model had an incredibly tiny keyboard and an awkwardly slow processor. The Eee PC T101H will have a larger keyboard, a larger 10.2 inch touchscreen display, and a faster processor.
According to a Netbook News.de tipster, the updated T101H will have a multi-touch display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 pineview processor, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB solid state disk, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional GPS, 3G, and DVB-T modules. The laptop will also reportedly have an accelerometer and a battery that’s good for up to 8 hours.
It’ll ship with Windows 7 Home Premium. Now for the bad news. The laptop will reportedly have a starting price of nearly 700 Euros, or over $1000 US.
I’m going to take all of this with a grain of salt for now. After all, we’re talking about an anonymous tip regarding a product that was technically introduced more than 10 months ago.
