A company called bModo has announced it will start taking pre-orders for an 11.6 inch slate PC running Windows 7 later this month. If the bModo12 computer looks familiar, there’s a good reason for that. It appears to be based on the same OEM machine as the Neofonie WeTab, the ExoPC, and the Pioneer DreamBook ePad L11.

Liek those other computers, the bModo12 has a 1366 x 768 pixel glossy capacitive touchscreen display and a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor. It has 2 USB ports, an HDMI port, SD card reader, and SIM card slot. The computers comes with 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, a 3G modem, a 1.3MP camera and an accelerometer. It also has a Broadcom HD video accelerator.

The version bModo is selling comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, 1GB of memory, and a 32GB solid state disk. It has a 4800mAh battery which bModo says should be good for up to 5 hours of run time. It weighs just under 2.2 pound.

There’s no word on price, but the company plans to start taking pre-orders in the US, with shipping expected to begin in December.

  1. I’ve been waiting for a new Windows 7 tablet for a long time. Now, the wait is getting ridiculous. Maybe it’s because the manufacturers are trying to get the same battery life squeezed out those slates as compared to an iPad. Due to the needs of the OS, performance would then take a hit. It can’t be done…yet.

    CTL did start shipping their tablet, but soon ran out. The next round of shipments is not until December. Another wait. If fact, now the company is going to charge your credit card at the time of order, instead of holding off until the ship date. They claim “…to decrease fraud and to help ensure that backorder queues on popular products are equitable…”. Which may mean they need the extra funding to manufacture the units, and your upfront payment will help.

    I hate to say it, but I’m not waiting any longer. I purchased an iPad yesterday. It will keep me mobile until the Win 7 machines eventually show up. If they do.
