Gizmag caught up with Hanvon at China's Consumer Electronics Show in Qingdao this last weekend and took a closer look at the company's new tablet computer, the Touchpad B10. Benefiting from Intel's ultra-low-power processor and a couple of gigabytes of system memory, the Windows 7 multi-touch tablet also features a built-in camera and both VGA and HDMI display ports for onward connectivity to either a monitor or television.
CES China has just wrapped up and Hanvon – creators of Chinese handwriting recognition software and makers of e-Readers, graphic tablets and biometric solutions – took the opportunity to show off its new Touchpad B10 tablet computer. The 9.96 x 6.61 x 0.70 inch, 1.98 pound device is powered by a 1.3GHz ULV 743 Celeron processor and GMA X4500 display chip from Intel on a GS45 chipset with 2GB DDR2 memory and a 250GB hard disk drive.
Above the 1024 x 600 resolution 10.1 inch LED backlit capacitive touchscreen display sits a built-in 1.3MP camera and LED indicators for such things as battery level, drive status and so on. Underneath and to the right is a useful multi-directional mouse controller and to the right are a couple of USB ports, a multi card reader, VGA output and audio jacks.
On the left side of the aluminum alloy/carbon fiber/plastic B10 is a jog dial for page up/down functionality and of course command confirmation when pressed. There's also HDMI out and hardware buttons.
The B10 runs Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit), has 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR wireless connectivity and comes with optional software including Hanvon's handwriting recognition and facial recognition software and TouchBar. Power is supplied by a Li-Polymer 4800 mAh battery.
