UK built iTablet rears its head, runs off with a shed load of iPad hype

Tablet, Tech Digest news

UK Computing itablet.jpgThere are a fair few tech companies piggy-backing off the hype surrounding the iPad with their own product launches, but this is both shameless and cheekily hilarious.

UK based X2 Computing are set to release their own touchscreen tablet, the iTablet. Sound familiar? Maybe because that was one of the names most often attached to Apple’s tablet before its official iPad launch.

To be fair though, the X2 Computing Windows-based tablet does have some nice features sorely lacking from the iPad.

Most notable is the inclusion of a 1.3 mega pixel webcam, Flash support, HDMI-out, as well as three USB ports and a 250GB hard drive. They do come at the expense of portability however, as it’s an inch and a half thick.

Available in 10.2-inch widescreen TFT or 12.1-inch widescreen XGA variants at a resolution of 1024×768, it’s packing a 1.6GHz Intel processor and will be available in a range of colours.

Expect a near-definite name-change before this one hits shops in April, as there’s no way Jobs didn’t have the iTablet moniker sewn up long ago.
