Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) has launched the H70 tablet at CeBIT 2006 – the latest in a succession of newly-unveiled UMPCs – or Origami devices if you prefer.
Powered by a choice of either the Intel Pentium M ULV 1GHZ FSB 400MHZ with a 2MB L2 on-die cache or an Intel Celeron M ULV 900MHZ, FSB 400MHZ processor with a 512 KB L2 on-die cache, the H70 features a 7-inch WVGA TFT LCD touchscreen display and a "slip proof" to stop you dropping your new toy on the move.
It has both Bluetooth and WiFi along with ‘grab and go’ docking for maximum connectivity. There’s also a 1.3MP camera; built-in speakers and microphone; a high definition audio codec and an integrated 3-in-1 card reader. Based on the Intel Centrino mobile platform, the ECS H70 tablet combines connectivity with power saving technology – its ultra low voltage CPU provides both performance and long battery life without any overheating. DDRII memory technology more than doubles the effective data rate of the frontside bus delivering 30 percent better performance than DDRI while consuming less power and creating less heat even though it operates at a higher transfer rate.
The H70 will be available in the second quarter of 2006 – no details of price as yet.
