Remember that cheap touchscreen tablet-style netbook from Malata that we spotted last month? It looks like it might be headed to the US after all. The FCC has published some documents (PDF link) related to the PC, which is a pretty good indication that it could be available in the States in the not too distant future. I suspect the Malata PC-91008 might be rebranded and sold under a different name if and when it is released here.
It features a 10 inch touchscreen display that can swivel down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode, and in China it also had a reasonably low price tag, especially when compared with tablet-style netbooks from Asus and Gigabyte.
The Malata tablet has a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and up to a 320GB hard drive. It also features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, and a touchpad that supports multitouch gestures. It weighs just under 3 pounds.
