At this year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) Gigabyte had showed a Windows 7 based tablet computer. The device is not out of build and is waiting for the FCC approval to be available for sale in the market. The tablet is called the Gigabyte Slate S1081 and has a big 10.1 inch screen.
Let us now take a quick look at the specs and features of the Gigabyte Slate S1081 tablet:
- Has a 10.1 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a display resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels.
- The Tablet will run on Windows 7 operating system
- Powered by Intel Atom Cedar Trail processor
- 4GB RAM
- There is a 2.5 inch bay in which you can push in a hard disk drive or a solid state drive
- Apart from these the Tablet has all other standard features such as Ethernet, 3.5 mm audio jacks, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and D-Sub
- There are 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 USB 3.0 port, VGI and HDMI ports on the tablet
- There is also a 29.6 Whr battery that powers the tablet
Looking at the specs and feature of the tablet, we were not very impressed to be frank. The biggest let down is the operating system – Windows 7. Gigabyte could have gone with some mobile operating systems such as Android or Meego. We expect the Gigabyte Slate S1081 to cost around US $450 (Approx Rs. 18,000 in Indian Currency)
