Move over Apple, Microsoft, Archos, and everybody else. Another company is elbowing its way into the already-crowded tablet computer space (and I say crowded, even though most of these companies haven’t actually released a tablet yet… but they will). Russian site The eBook reports that the new player is the Lbook T9 which will reportedly sell for between $350 and $375.
The device is a tablet with an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 3G. It will weigh just under 1.5 pounds and measure about half an inch thick.
The Lbook T9 is due out around March, 2010 and it’s expected to ship with Windows 7.
It’s not necessarily the most impressive tablet I’ve seen. But the price ain’t bad. Of course, for just a little more you can pick up an Asus Eee PC T91 which has a touchscreen and a keyboard. But it won’t be as thin or light.
