Cynovo C7 tablet joins the Intel MID entourage
Originally shown at Intel's booth at CES, the Cynovo C7 tablet is from a relatively new Chinese company from the city of Wuxi in the Jiangsu province of China. It joins the increasing number of Intel-powered MIDs running a full installation of Windows (XP or 7), with the most recent examples covered here being the Cowon W2 and Tainell T500.
The C7 has a slightly larger screen than those rivals, measuring 7-inches with multi-touch support, although the resolution is unknown. Other specifications are competitive with a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 CPU powering proceedings, 2GB of RAM, 32GB SSD, 3G, WiFi, and GPS packed into a slim, lightweight body weighing around 17.64oz (500g). Keeping with the "7" theme, the operating system of choice is Windows 7 although we are unsure which version is pre-installed. From the available images, it looks like the tablet also includes stereo speakers, a microphone, and a webcam, with what looks like a finger mouse in the top right corner.
I like the sleek design of the Cynovo C7 more than the Cowon W2 and Tainell T500, and the specifications are certainly competitive, although being larger it may be less portable. Unfortunately like many newly spotted MIDs, information regarding price and availability is unknown.midbbs]
