TESO updates their 10-inch Windows 7 tablet
Remember the TESO tablet? In our first report we called it a comically large iPhone, because, well, it was. This Windows 7 tablet looked like mime prop due to its unfailing imitation of the familiar iPhone 3G/3GS design (except, you know, three times larger). Well TESO has released an updated model of their 10-inch Windows 7 tablet and we’re happy to say… nope, it still looks like a big iPhone.
The case does look a bit better. The familiar rounded edges are still there but it looks like TESO may have widened the top and bottom bezel and popped in a webcam. The hardware update with the TESO tablet takes the processor from an Intel Atom N450 to an Intel Atom N455. “Big deal,” you may say (and mostly be right), but the processor upgrade allows for DDR3 RAM instead of DDR2. The rest of the previous specs look to remain intact, including 3G, 4-in-1 card reader, WiFi b/g, three USB 2.0 ports, accelerometer, 320GB HDD, 3000mAh battery and VGA.
The primary reason we keep focusing on the TESO tablet is that it could be a decent offering for consumers looking for Windows 7 on a large capacitive multitouch screen. While there’s no word on official price yet, if TESO can sell this for $400 or under they could sell quite a few to those sick of waiting on the HP Slate, MSI WindPad 100 or LG UX10.
