The tablet market is gathering momentum, and AMtek has just announced all five of the models they’ll be bringing to Computex next month. The slates range in processor prowess from a simple 800MHz Freescale chip, through NVIDIA’s Tegra 2, and then into the realms of Intel’s Menlow and Montevina platforms. Touchscreen technology, meanwhile, includes active digitizers and multitouch-capable capacitive screens.
At the bottom end is the AMtek iTablet Ex-Lite II (AE04), a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600 or 1024 x 768) slate with multitouch display, 800MHz Freescale CPU, 512MB of RAM and 512MB of flash storage. It has WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and a 2-megapixel camera, as well as optional 3G and GPS, and will run either Windows CE6, Android 2.0 or Linux. The AMtek iTablet Speed-Lite (AE03) is similar, but swaps the CPU for NVIDIA’s 1GHz Tegra 2 and boosts RAM to 1GB.
Meanwhile the three Intel-based tablets are a little more serious. The AMtek iTablet Lite (TZ10), T23A CULV Tablet PC and T23X CULV Tablet PC all get Windows 7 and up to 4GB of RAM. The iTablet Lite has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600 or 1024 x 768) multitouch touchscreen, 2-megapixel camera, 64GB SSD and the same connectivity options as the ARM-based models, plus an Atom Z530 1.6GHz CPU.
The AMtek T23A and T23X CULV Tablet PCs both get the 1.3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU with Cantiga GS graphics, 12.1-inch XGA (1024 x 768) display, up to 320GB HDD and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. The T23A has a standard active digitizer, while the T23X will be available with a digitizer, a touchscreen or a combo screen with both technologies. No word on pricing for any of the slates, but we’re hoping AMtek will spill the beans next month.
