ExoPC has started taking pre-orders for the company’s 11.6 inch Windows tablet. While pre-sales were initially limited to a group of 1200 early adopters, ExoPC is now selling the tablet to the general public — although you’ll still need to sign up for a ExoPC Forum account to get to the pre-order page.
The good news is that the tablet will run $649 Canadian and up, with a 64GB model running $749 CAD, or about $724 US. That’s about $50 $CAD cheaper than expected for the 64GB model. The bad news is that ExoPC will likely be dropping GPS from the top of the line 64GB model.
The company is also attempting to curb off any criticism at the curb by pointing out that while the tablet sometimes gets more than 4 hours of run time, ExoPC doesn’t feel comfortable promising more than 4 hours. So the tablet comes with a 4 hour battery life. That’s a pretty welcome admission in a day and age when most companies try to inflate battery life claims. On the other hand, until we see real world tests, we won’t know for certain whether even 4 hours is reasonable.
