As expected, the folks at Netbook Navigator have launched a new version of their Nav9 Windows tablet. Like the version I reviewed last year, the new Nav9 features an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N450 processor. But the new model has a few extra features.
First up, the Nav9 still features a multitouch resistive touchscreen display, but it’s a new low-pressure display designed for better sensitivity. The new model also has a mini SD card slot and three USB ports, which is one more than the original Nav9 tablet had.
The tablet is also now available in an all-black case, although you can still get a Nav9 with the silver/chromed edges if you like.
The Nav9 has the same $599 starting price for a tablet with 16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and no operating system. If you want Windows 7 Home Premium preloaded you’ll have to shell out $699 or more.
