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:
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.
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.
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.
