Somebody needs to rent a boat, sail to China and pick up a hold-full of unknown touchscreen tablets; it's getting more than a little frustrating seeing what's on offer over there, and having so little choice in the US and Europe. Latest to tickle our collective fancy is the K.R.T. X9 from Shenzhen K.R.T. Technology, a 10-inch multitouch slate running Windows 7 on an Intel Atom N270 processor. The X9 packs WCDMA, TD-SCDMA and CDMA2000 3G, pretty much covering all the bases, together with WiFi a/b/g.
Two batteries are up for grabs, one with 2,800mAh and the other with 3,500mAh, for up to 4hrs runtime. The rest of the specs are pretty much standard netbook news, with 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard-drive, three USB 2.0 ports and a VGA port. It'll apparently go on sale in China for around 4,000 yuan ($586), and while it may be a little bulky at 226.3 x 166.9 x 24.7 mm and 2kg, we reckon there'd be quite a few people willing to join us down at the docks when that goodie-boat unloads.
