Windows 7 iTablet Gets a Closer Look [CES 2011]

First came the computers, then came the laptops, followed by the Windows mobile phone and now the iTablet. Marketed as a collaborative venture between UK-based X2 Computing and Taiwanese Amtek, the iTablet is the latest upgrade to the engineering system of computers that premier at CES 2011.

The iTablet is powered by Windows 7 and is operable with the help of a touch screen.  There are all the features that are generally present in a routine laptop but with the absence of the extra load while carrying a laptop.

There are a couple of USB ports along with a two MP camera with the regular Windows operations of Word, PowerPoint and others. Also there is a connectivity port enabled for the purpose of connecting the iTablet with a HD display. Added to all this, the fact that the iTablet is a touch screen application provides the most important USP.

The use of touch screen negates the use of a keyboard and therefore promises to be a great replacement for the current generation computers. Additionally, since most mobile phones in today’s time provide applications that feature in personal computers, the absence of a keyboard becomes an extra feature in a technological development like the iTablet.

The iTablet is a development that is primarily targeted at prosumers – a combination of the words ‘producer’ and ‘consumer.’ The term prosumer means a segment of individuals, who though do not represent the consumer market, are still consumers by way of being producers. In other words, it can be said that the iTablet is aimed to be marketed at a middle-level consumer crowd rather than the consumers at the extreme end-level.

Marketed under the banner of AHX Global, the iTablet promises to be a gadget that will pioneer the way computer hardware is being set-up. Additionally its presence at the world renowned CES, proves its worth and credibility not just for the present, but also for the future.
