The Tegra tablet PC - hold on with both hands

28 November 2009

Those lucky boys at Engadget have managed to get their sweaty palms on the mystery tablet device spotted a couple of weeks ago. It's a NVIDIA Tegra "kitchen" tablet, only at a prototype stage but still very, very nice.

It looks a little on the large size to us - it certainly seems designed for the home than taking out and about - but when mounted to the charging station, it's the sort of device that'll replace the TV in some rooms:

Bitterwallet - new tablet PC for the home

The only disappointment is that it's running Windows rather than the rumoured Android OS. Bah. Pop over to Engadget to see a short video of the prototype in action.

    That looks pretty good, but the main issue will be price to whether it sells or not. Also it would be great if Android was at least an option.

    When watching the video on the Engadget site, its quite amusing that the guy demonstrating it hasn't got a scooby what hes doing. Trying to make a video play full size seems to make him crap his pants.

    I have to ask it again: What is so good about half a laptop?
  • Jeffrey A.
    Not stating the obvious (much), but it's half the size?

    "there's even a terrific-looking wireless recharge station cum base accessory" Personally I find a "cum base accessory" essential when watching movies on my laptop. Don't you?

    Looks more like the touch-screen monitor that the Microsoft guys had to display Expression Studio at this years PHP-NW

    Hi, my name is Brian. I have been off-line for a few days. I was "internet-grounded" after my mother saw me viewing an image of Michelangelo's David.....she thought i was submitting to GAY temptations!!! Anyway, this tablet looks cool (but big)
  • Hi O.
    Let's have this thing running a real operating system, instead of the toy that is windows.....

    @Paul Smith Can you please add “cum base accessory” to the tags for this item, as discovered by the Rt Hon Cedric Smythe-Featherstonehaugh? You recently added "but plug", but "cum base accessory" is a far more common search criteria. Thank you.

    That screen looks like it has a big crack in it. Also, jeffrey archer - it's not "half the size". When being transported a laptop folds to around the same size as this. But with much more use.

What do you think?
