(Presumably) Very Cheap Tablet PCs by NEC

Illustration for article titled (Presumably) Very Cheap Tablet PCs by NEC

See this tablet? It's new from NEC and features the same monotonous specs (1.6GHz Atom, 512MB-1GB RAM and 80GB HD) that we see in those cheapie mini-notebooks like the Asus Eee. Running XP or Vista and loaded with a 12 or 15-inch touchscreen, it's by no means beautiful, but this NEC could be the forebear of a new netbook-tablet market. We don't have pricing or release details at this time, but we'll keep a lookout, just for you. [Akihabara News]

I was "ooooo"ing over this when I saw it on a (forgive me!) non-Gawker, tech site.

According to the translation I got off of NEC's page, it releases Sept. 22nd for about 250k yen.

...or about $2200 smackaroos. (alas)
