In case you hadn’t noticed yet, tablets were one of the big three trends at CES this year (the other two being 3D TV and eBook readers). While I got a chance to check out a few interesting tablets, I barely scratched the surface. But fortunately jkkmobile got to spend some time with a few models that I missed.

One of the more interesting prototypes was a 10 inch tablet from Hanvon, with a slim design, a camera on the back, and Windows 7 Starter Edition. I have no idea why anyone would put out a tablet with the version of Windows 7 that doesn’t include touchscreen features. I suppose it would help keep the price down, but if you’re going to show a prototype at a huge consumer electronics show, wouldn’t you at least want to show that it can run Windows 7 Home Premium?

Jkk also got some hands-on time with a few tablets from LonMID, as well as a handheld device with a keyboard and touchscreen (and a secondary screen on the back of the display, which you can use to make phone calls.

Finally, he checked out a few Tegra 2-powered tablets from Compal.

You can check out his videos after the break.

  1. I’d love one of those if I could get my hands on a netbook-sized slate stand + USB keyboard for optional full use

  2. This is the second time I’ve seen this guy incorrectly identify a piece of technology as resistive when it is in fact capacitive.

    1. That guy is jkkmobile, he has been doing tech reviews for mobile devices for years and not only reviews but often mods. So he knows his stuff.

      But that device was using Windows 7 Starter, which cripples much of the benefits you would otherwise get from a capacitive multi-touch screen. And it’s still unusual to see a capacitive touch screen for a screen that size. So honest mistake.
