OK, so this 10 inch tablet from Shenzhen Great Loong Brother Industrial isn’t actually running Google Chrome like some other tablets we’ve seen. But it does have shiny chrome around the edges of the tablet which gives it an eye-catching visual appeal. On the other hand, when you combine a shiny frame with a glossy display, you’re just asking for fingerprints to collect on a touchscreen tablet.
As far as the specifications, this tablet basically comes across as a netbook without a keyboard. It has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, GMA 950 graphics, a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen display, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. It supports Windows XP, Vista, and 7 as well as Linux.
The Brother Tablet also has 802.11b/g/ WiFi, a VGA output, 3 USB ports, mic, headphone, and Ethernet jacks, and an SD card reader. Bluetooth and 3G options are available. On the inside there are 2 mini-PCI-E slots.
There’s no word on pricing, because this model isn’t available in the US yet. But until Brother does something about the battery life, I don’t think we’ll be seeing it here anytime soon. With a 2400mAh battery, the tablet runs for just 1.5 hours.
More photos after the break.
I have not tried emailing the canadian importer yet to see if they have plans…
How can you see if there is an importer? I hope it will be possible to get something like this in the Netherlands!
Isn’t it possible to order and ship it directly from Shenzhen Great Loong Brother Industrial?
Looks more attractive than Archos 9 to me… What a shame we don’t have any importer of these nice gadgets in Sweden yet
1.5 hours of battery life??! Not very portable, is it?
It seems to have a nice stand/mounting possibility as well.
This could really be a nice replacement of my Asus R2H!
Wish I could find an importer for these… same hardware as the Archos 9, but the extra mini-pci-e slots make it infinitely more attractive.
