Remember Gigabyte’s new multitouch convertible netbook, the T1000, spotted on the company’s site over the weekend? Gigabyte have been showing it off properly at CeBIT 2010 this week, and several people have stopped by for a quick hands-on.
Video demo after the cut
NetbookItalia have a good all-round photoset of the T1000P, and they also spotted a SIM card reader lurking behind the battery. That certainly indicates that Gigabyte will be offering a 3G and/or 4G version of the tablet, something that wasn’t mentioned on the original spec sheet.
Meanwhile jkkmobile shot some hands-on video with the twisting convertible netbook, and he seems reasonably impressed. He reckons the multitouch is actually more responsive than the comparable ASUS machine (the Eee PC T101MT) though the functionality is actually limited by the Windows 7 Starter Edition OS. What’s left to be figured out is what sort of battery life can be stretched out from the 4-cell or 6-cell packs.
