RedFox Technologies announced over the week-end the availability of its long-overdue tablet PC — the RedFox WizPad. First mentioned back in July, the WizPad is a 10-inch tablet running an Intel Atom CPU and Windows 7.
We got to check out one at an SM Appliance Store yesterday to see it first-hand and to get the suggested retail price.
10″ capacitive display screen @ 1024×600 pixels
Intel Atom N455 1.6GHz
Intel GMA 3150
1GB DDR3 RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g
2 USB 2.0 ports
SD card slot
There’s a G-sensor that allows you to flip the screen 360-degrees and auto-orients the display accordingly, much like the iPad.
Though there is an open slot for a 3G SIM card, it does not have a modem installed. The sales rep says, it’s optional and can be upgraded at point of sale. Claimed battery life is around 6 hours.
RedFox also promises larger capacity models like a 32GB SSD storage and 2GB DDR3 RAM in future releases. RedFox mentioned before that this is gonna be a multi-OS tablet which is technically true considering it’s got the guts of your typical netbook. You can probably easily install Meego or Ubuntu in here via the USB port (or maybe even Android).
This particular model comes pre-installed with Windows 7 and has a hefty price tag of Php31,999.
