Though the Open Tablet 7 may never see the light of day, the good people at OpenPeak are willing to put it out there for us to see what their tablet platform is made of. Powered by Intel’s next-generation processor the “Moorestown,” with a 7-inch multi-touch TFT LCD screen backlit by LEDs, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and 3G cellular connectivity it’s a contendor for other tablets coming to market.
Dubbed as the “communications command center” by converging voice, video and data services into one ultra-sleek, portable, touch-screen tablet, the system is uses a proprietary OS which could be early signs of defeat. Some of the applications being developed for the system include Facebook, a thermostat, which will connect to your home thermostat for remote control, IM support for Google Talk and a suite of delivery services that will quickly contact local delivery companies.
Dual cameras are its strong point, where the iPad left us dry, and the iPhone 4G gives many hope, users will be able to capture high-definition video and still images then output them via the HDMI output port. On-board is a USB interface and MicroSD slot for expansion memory, it has built-in speakers and a microphone for full telephone and multimedia streaming via wireless. It measures 8 x 5 x 0.59-inches and weighs 1.15 lbs.
