The invasion the tablets into the world of consumer electronics continues from where CES left off earlier this year, with Gigabyte being part of the parade by rolling out their S1080 tablet device. This will take the road less traveled since it is powered by Windows 7 instead of the Android operating system, running on an Intel Atom N550 1.66GHz dual-core processor while being accompanied by 2GB RAM, sporting a 320GB hard drive, integrated GMA 3150 graphics with VGA output, Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity.
Video calls can be made via the Gigabyte S1080 thanks to its 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, while you will also have it somewhat future proof thanks to the inclusion of a USB 3.0 port with another USB 2.0 port thrown in for nostalgia’s sake. Ethernet connectivity and an SD memory card reader rounds off the list of hardware specifications for the moment.
Some might say that this is a netbook sans keyboard, and we do agree with that to a certain extent. How much do you think you are willing to fork out for a device like the Gigabyte S1080?
