Want a handheld slate running Ubuntu 9.04 on an 800MHz Freescale i.MX515 (based on ARM Cortex A8) processor? If you're feeling like a black sheep with last year's Sharp NetWalker Z1 clamshell MID when you're with your tablet-toting pals, then look no further than the new Sharp NetWalker PC-T1, the device you see next to the HTC EVO 4G above (you're getting your EVO fix from Good and EVO, right?).
The NetWalker T1 features a 5-inch WSVGA touchscreen, 8GB flash storage with microSD card support, 512MB of memory, WiFi, Bluetooth, and 6-hour battery life. And it's now available to order from Conics.net in black or silver.
While I work on my full review, have a look at a quick unboxing and size comparisons with the original NetWalker, Archos 5 Internet Tablet, and of course the EVO.
The NetWalker T1 ships with some paperwork in Japanese, a charger, a 2300mAh battery, and a very nice soft pouch with a hard insert in the front to protect the screen and exterior loops to hold the stylus.
Like the Z1, the NetWalker T1 ships with its operating system in Japanese but can easily be changed into English.
And speaking of its predecessor, here it is with the T1.
And here's the T1 with the Archos 5IT and the EVO again.
The Sharp NetWalker PC-T1 is available now from Conics.net.
