Netbook Navigator Nav7 Windows tablet up for pre-order

The world’s first Windows 7 tablet with a 7 inch display is now up for pre-order. Christened Nav 7, the tablet from Netbook Navigator has a starting price of 9 though the earliest the tablet can be expected to reach consumer’s end is end May. Also, at that price, the Nav 7 is not the cheapest Windows tablet around but can still make for a splendid choice if the overall package is taken into account. Then it has some nice cool features as well.

Like the Nav 7 has a 1.60 GHz Intel Z350 single core processor that is based on the Silverthorne family of Intel Atom CPUs and is known for its extremely low rate of power consumption. Up front, there is the 7 inch capacitive multi touch display having a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Configuration choice can be either with the on-board memory or with the RAM strength that the tablet come with. There is also the optional 3G model to chose from as well. In all, there Nav 7 comprises of three Wi-Fi only models and 3 Wi-Fi plus 3G models with the top of the line model with all the bells and whistles will set one back by a cool 49.

In fact, that’s not all for Netbook Navigator also allows to further customize the Nav 7 according to one’s own requirements and budget. For this, there is a stripped down version available that comes for 9. For this amount of money, the tablet will comes with 16 GB of Solid State Hard Drive, 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM, along with WIFI and Bluetooth as the default connectivity options. There will also be a 1.3 megapixel camera built into the front of the tablet. Other features that the base Nav 7 also has on offer include 2 USB ports, an Ethernet jack, one SIM card slot plus some more. What remains constant in all the Nav 7 models is the Intel Atom Z530 processor along with of course the 7 inch display. The base model will be devoid of any operating system though there is the choice of Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate versions available, each higher iteration of which will require more each time. Similarly, 32 and 64 GB of hard drive will add 0 and 0 to the cost while doubling the RAM strength will add more.

So in all, the Nav 7 can turn out to be more costly than even the highest speced model of many an Android tablet with a larger display. However, the Nav 7 can still be a sensible buy if one is looking for a cute little tablet that comes with the power of Windows and a lot of practicality.

WiFi only Motorola XOOM up for pre-order at B&H for $599

Mar

17

By Sovy

Good news for those who have been waiting for the Wi-Fi only version of the Motorola XOOM. The Android 3.0 tablet is currently available for pre-order in the United States at B&H. Of course there is reason to look forward to the XOOM tablet PC and the most obvious is the price advantage that the Wi-Fi only version has over its 3G counterpart. At 9, the Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM is a whole 0 less than the full blown 3G XOOM though both remains essentially the same feature wise.

However, there is no mention either from Motorola itself or B&H as to when the XOOM will eventually ship. There has also been news of Staples too coming in to offer the Wi-Fi XOOM where the shipping date has been mentioned as March 27. Also, B&H is likely to be getting only limited quantities of the XOOM, which means its only the early birds that will have their pre-orders honored. The good news though is that there are no shipping charges involved.

Motorola XOOM Pre-order from Thursday and for $1200

A Best Buy page has emerged almost out of nowhere and it has some good and bad news. Then there is lot’s of confusion as well. To begin with the not so good part of the story, the Motorola XOOM will cost a whooping 00. That’s the cost of a single unit of the first Honeycomb tablet and not a discounted price for picking up more than one unit of the tablet. This when many considered a 0 price tag is a bit too exorbitant.

Next, coming to the good part of the story – the tablet will be up for pre-order as early as Thursday itself. This comes as a surprise as the XOOM is expected to make its debut towards the end of this month.

However, while a Thursday date for the pre-order phase to begin is welcome, the price bit is indeed baffling. Chances are that there has been a mistake somewhere. But then, if that is not the case and the 00 price tag is for the unlocked version of the XOOM, then the first Honeycomb tablet will have to pack in a lot of honey to make sure it survives in the market.There has been no word from Motorola as yet to clear up the thing.

eLocity 10 inch Android tablets up for pre-order

Stream TV Networks, Inc., the Philadelphia based company has announced they are now ready to wade deeper in the tablet segments with better and bigger machines. Their latest tablet offerings – the 10 inch eLocity A10 tablet which the company claims is a generation ahead of what it had on offer until now is up for pre-order. Pre-sales start from the 15th of this month with e-tailers including Amazon, J&R, B&H, and TigerDirect currently taking orders for the Android tablets.

A good thing with the eLocity A10 is that though it’s a single model on offer, it comprises of three versions that differ on the basis of their storage capacities. The base version has just 4 GB on offer though the next in line comes with 32 and 64 GB of on board storage. Price wise, the base tablet would cost 9 which goes up to 9 for the 32 GB model and 9 for the top end 64 GB version.

However, all the tablet versions have everything else in common. Like the tablet is built around a 1 GHz dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 T250 processor with 1MB L2 Cache coupled to a 512 MB DDR2 RAM. A 10.1 inch IPS multitouch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels makes up the front of the tablet and is in fact a lot better than the earlier eLocity A7 tablets.

These apart, the tablets come with other features such as 802.11b/gn Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, an USB 2.0 port, HDMI port capable of outputting 1080p videos along with a 3-axis accelerometer and ambient light sensor. There is a Micro SD Card Slot that will allow memory to be upped by 32 GB at a time. A 3.5mm Headphone jack, a 1.3 MP front facing camera and twin speakers complete the spec story of the tablet that measure 10.9 X 7 X 0.5 inches and weights 1.72 lbs.

Operating system for the eLocity A10 is Android 2.2, though its makers have stated that Honeycomb will be integrated via a software update at a later time.

More on this is awaited.

Archos 70c color e-reader up for pre-order

It started out with Archos 70b, the 7 inch color e-reader that was up for pre-order in Europe back in December 2010. Well it’s a new year now and Archos has decided to introduce the e-reader in the United States. But then, whether it’s the time gap or the distance but there is a slight change in the e-book reader’s nomenclature. It’s now known as Archos 70c.

Interestingly, there are no pictures available though the device is up for pre-order at JR.com for 9. Also, with no pictures to act as a reference point, there is no definite way to point out if the two European and US versions of the Archos e-reader are the same.

Specification wise, there is however not much to differentiate one from the other. Like the 70c e-reader includes a 7 inch TFT resistive touchscreen having a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a 600 MHz processor while on board storage is quite generous (by e-reader standards) at 4 GB. However, if you still need more, you can make good use of the SD card slot.

The rest of the spec story includes Wi-Fi, built-in speakers, a headphone jack as well as an accelerometer. Battery life is a decent 10 hours of e-reading on a single full charge while the OS is Android 2.1.

And lastly, the Archos 70c is one of those devices that slots in the tablet and e-reader combo segment. Its e-reader credentials lies in the fact that it of course allows its users to read e-books via its 7 inch LCD display. Users will be able to manage their library and save bookmarks along with others things that one expects out of their e-book reading device. But then, the 70c is also about playing videos and music or displaying pictures and slideshows. One will also be able to browse the web and download apps. So with this set of functionalities on offer, it’s right in the segment of the Nook Color except the presence of the two buttons on the two side bezels that perhaps give the game away of it being an e-reader after all. Also, it’s almost a certainty, someone somewhere is already up to developing a hack that would transform the Archos 70c into a full fledged tablet. This would be interesting since the Archos 70c is already more affordable than the Nook Color.

ASUS Windows 7 Eee PC EP121 tablet up for pre-order

Asus was making waves at the Consumer Electronic Show in Nevada earlier this month with four tablet PCs and now you can do that same with at least one of them – Asus Eee PC EP121 that runs Windows 7. This since the other three tablets would run Android Honeycomb and the Android version designed specifically for tablet devices is still three month away. However, the sole tablet to run Windows 7 is currently on pre-order status with deliveries slated to begin from January 24 onwards.

And if you are still wondering whether the Eee PC EP121 would make for a smart buy, well the tablet can be the perfect substitute to a netbook PC. Or maybe it packs in even more muscle in the form of an Intel i5-470UM processor having a clock speed of 1.33 GHz coupled to an impressive 4GB of RAM. The tablet includes internal memory that amounts to 64 GB of SSD and packs in several other convenient features such as a mini HDMI out, a built-in 2 megapixel camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. There’s also a flash card reader and a USB port while the screen measures 12.1 inch of 1280 x 800 pixel IPS capacitive touchscreen display.

Also, while the tablet does include some heavy duty stuff, all of that also does get reflected at the weighing scales as well. For the tablet weighs a quite hefty 2.55 pounds, which puts it firmly in the league of laptops and netbook PCs. However, the EP121 lacks seriously in one area – its battery backup time which at 3 hours is surely the EP121s weakest point. And as for its price, the EP121 can be yours for a cool 99.99.

notion ink adam pre-order

So you just recently pre-ordered the new Notion ink Adam? Well Rohan Stravan and the boys at Notion Ink just made it a bit easier to check on the status of your order, with a new portal that gives you an estimated shipping date and further information regarding your purchase.

The Notion Ink Adam might be charging a .00 flat rate for DHL to deliver it to you, which has irked some people in the last few days. Pre-Orders initially went on sale only last week and already quite a number of people have been holding off reserving one. This is mainly attributed to the fact that no real hands-on video has been produced by the company. Notion Ink has addressed this issue and has promised official video on December 18th 2010.

When you place your order for the Adam, which offers varying price ranges depending on if you want the basic WI-FI model, the 3G one, or the king of Adams the WI-FI/3G Pixel-QI screen!

If you have placed an order and received a Order ID number, you can visit http://www.notionink.com/preorderlogin.php and check on all of your order details. We are also told that when your tracking number gets dispatched sometime around January 9th 2011, you will be able to see it there.
