Fluid Computer Systems prepares two more tablets to hit the market
The tablet market is certainly pretty interesting ever since the Apple iPad graced the scene, as interest in this particular niche market has certainly shot up by quite an impressive margin as people started getting interested in toting around a highly portable computer of sorts sans keyboard to get their Web surfing done on-the-go, not to mention the ability to play some really fun games amongst others. Well, Fluid Computer Systems has decided to join the fray by offering a couple more tablets to the scene. Needless to say, they won’t be running on the iOS platform, and neither will Google’s Android OS feature in either model. Instead, Fluid Computer Systems thinks that Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system is just the right ticket to help them move enough tablets to turn a profit. What can be found within? Well, let us take a closer look at it in the extended post.
This venture-backed tech company specializes in innovative products, and has decided to roll out their first mass-market Windows 7 PC tablet by scheduling it to be in time for a Christmas delivery. Funny that the company intends to make sure only 1,000 of the slate-style multi-touch screen computers will be released then – is it just to test the market, and do they lack confidence in their product? What we do know about the pre-Christmas tablet would be as follows – a 10.1 inch display, Wi-Fi connectivity, Flash-friendly browsing, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, an Intel Atom processor, and Bluetooth connectivity, all going for $599 a pop.
Of course, there is also a second model available, but that one will be out by the time February 2011 rolls around which means you won’t be able to find this in your Christmas stocking this year. This model, known as the Fluid Motion (as opposed to the Fluid Stream), will come with built-in 3G connectivity so that means you can go online just about anywhere you are without having to rely on a Wi-Fi hotspot. If you are interested, then you will have to fork out another Benjamin for this puppy.
