Shenzhen Firstview’s netbooks of CES
Shenzhen Firstview Electronics is a Hong Kong-based company that makes a pretty wide line of netbooks, phones, MP3 players and other devices. At CES last week, the company was showing off a number of new netbooks.
Most of the netbooks on display were little 7 inch jobs with Xburst or ARM-based processors. One mdoel that did catch my eye was a 10 inch netbook with a rather unusual chrome trim around the edges.
This model is the Firstview PC810T. it has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and an 800MHz ARM11 CPU. The mini-laptop runs Windows CE and has 2GB of flash storage and 512MB of RAM. The computer has 802.11b/g WiFi, 2 USB ports, a rather unusual VGA adapter, and an HDMI output, which surprised me. It also has a SIM card slot and support for WCDMA mobile broadband connections.
The Firstview catalog I picked up also has listings for a number of ARM-based tablets with 7 to 10 inch touchscreen displays and Windows CE or Linux. It’s not clear if any of these netbooks or tablets will make it to the US anytime soon. But I’ve posted some more photos to tease you anyway. You can check them out after the break.
