The BYD tablets, netbooks of CeBIT

BYD is showing off a series of netbooks and tablets at CeBIT in Germany, and jkkmobile shot a little video with a few of the most interesting models. You can check out his videos below, but here’s a quick rundown of what he found:

BYD M09AS netbook

On paper, this netbook looks a bit like a throwback to 2008. It has an 8.9 inch. 1024 x 600 pixel display and an Intel Atom Z5xx series processor and GMA 500 graphics. It’s available with either a 16GB/32GB SSD or a 1.8″ hard drive, and it has a 2 cell, 3200mAh battery.

But the M09AS is very thin and has a nice looking metal case and keyboard. It also packs 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 3G module.

Instead of a standard touchpad, there’s an optical mouse which takes up less space.

BYD Alice tablet with Tegra

This tablet features an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and NVIDIA’s Tegra chipset, which combines a low power ARM-based processor with a graphics processor capable of handling HD video and some 3D graphics.

The BYD Alice runs either Google Android or Windows CE. The tablet has Bluetooth and WiFi built in, plus a PCIe interface for a 3G modem or other components. It will be available with either 8GB or 16GB of flash storage.

BYD T10BPT tablet

The T10BPT is a 10.1 inch tablet with a 1024 x 600 pixel multitouch display. It has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 2.5″ hard drive. The tablet supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G mobile broadband and has a 4 cell, 47Whr battery.

There’s also an HDMI output, which is odd for a computer with GMA 3150 graphics. This tablet runs Windows 7.

    Wow, now if the tablet has a matte oil resistant screen capacitive multi-touch screen, it'll be an interesting device, especially it it slots in below the offering by Notion iInk, or actually comes to market in the US faster. It definitely looks like what I'd want out of a generic tablet as far as the limited specs offered here. I like the ability to add cards personally.

    Agreed. The Alice looks good with the specs given so far. Android would be preferable to CE. The Matte screen would be a requirement too.

    I just don't think I will like the touch screen ones so much. The M09AS is sweet though!
