In a recent presentation by RedFox executives where they previewed 3 ebook readers to the members of CyberPress, they also revealed they are coming out with a tablet this September.
The tablet will be named RedFox WizPad, a play on the popular Apple iPad tablet and is expected to be announced/released this September.
The WizPad will be powered by an Intel Atom processor (could be one of the new low-powered Atom Z6xx series). Best of all, customers will have a choice of operating system for the tablet — Android, Meego, Windows 7 and and Google’s Chrome OS.
The tablet will be larger than the iPad and as slim (14mm vs. 13.4mm of the iPad) with support for multi-touch (1366×768 pixel resolution).
The device will have WiFi and 3G versions as well as optional GPS. Unlike the iPad, the WizPad will have USB ports, SD card slot, webcam and mini-HDMI port.
No pricing was indicated but RedFox says it will be priced competitively. Will know more when they finally announce this in September.
Note: I delayed writing this entry hoping I could get a copy of the Powerpoint slides they showed during the presentation. I’m still waiting for it. Photo courtesy of Techie.com.ph.
