Attention for French firm eviGroup's upcoming Pad UMPC is growing, the company has released full specifications for the 10.6-inch touchscreen slate. The Pad has a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM (which, unlike many netbooks, is removable) and a 160GB 2.5-inch hard-drive, together with WiFi a/b/g and 3G (WCDMA/TD-SCDMA/CDMA).
The whole thing measures 260 x 160 x 22 mm and tips the scales at a bag-friendly 990g with the removable Li-Ion battery in place. eviGroup have confirmed there will be two models on offer, both with Windows 7 Premium (chosen for its Tablet PC functionality) but the cheaper model lacking integrated 3G and Seline AI. Pricing is expected to be under €500 ($743).
