Hanvon Touchpad B10 Windows 7 tablet vonts to be an iPad

Now that the Apple iPad is officially available to all international markets, we can fully expect a ceaseless flood of clones and knockoffs. One of the newer devices to join the fray is the Touchpad B10 tablet from Hanvon. Never heard of Hanvon? You’re not alone. I didn’t know who they were either when I went to the press conference at Computex. Apparently, the Chinese company was founded in 1998, based in Beijing, and focuses on “various intelligent pattern recognition technologies and products.”

In addition to yet another e-book reader and a Wacom-esque graphics tablet, Hanvon had its Touchpad to show off. On paper, this thing sounds like it might have the iPad beat. Processing comes from a 1.3GHz Intel Celeron ULV, storage is a 250GB SATA hard drive, with a 10.1-inch display offering capacitive touch.

I wasn’t able to get the thing to turn on by the time I got around to looking at it (maybe the battery was dead), but the spec sheet said that the Hanvon TouchPad B10 ran Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit). Personally, I don’t think Windows is really appropriate for the iPad-competing market. Something like Android is a much better fit.  Regarding hands-on impressions, the Hanvon tablet felt thicker and heavier than the iPad, but the aesthetics were awfully reminiscent of Steve Jobs’ favorite new toy.

    I own a TouchPad. It is fantastic. It is all you want from an iPad. Best of all, it is a computer run on Window 7.
