Onkyo NX, a rebranded Kohjinsha SK tablet PC, launches in Japan
Following the announcement of the Onkyo BX, a rebranded UMID M2, the Japanese company has also announced the launch of the NX707A4 tablet PC, which is basically a rebranded Kohjinsha SK series. For those of you familiar with the Kohjinsha SC3 previously covered on Pocketables, the SK is a successor/refresh of the older model with a refined design but retaining very similar specifications. Likewise, the NX is extremely similar to the SK with a 7-inch 1024×600 resistive touch screen, 1.33GHz Atom Z520 processor, Intel US15W chipset, 1GB of RAM, 80GB hard disk, WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, built-in GPS module, around 3 hours of battery life, and a light weight of 25.4oz.
Apart from a slightly larger hard disk (80GB vs. 60GB), the NX also differentiates itself from the SK in its choice of operating system, running Windows 7 Starter instead of Windows XP.
The device will be sold at the end of the month for ¥59,800 (about US$675) and although there is no news of its availability outside of Japan, I'm sure we can expect it to start showing up on sites like Conics, Dynamism, and Geek Stuff 4 U very soon.
