The launch of Intel’s new Oak Trail line of processors seems to have been perfectly timed. We are already getting to see tablets based on the Oak Trail chips hitting headlines. The first off the block is the ElitePad S10 from Elitegroup Computer Systems that has recently been spotted at the FCC, meaning a launch in the US might not be too far away.
Running Windows 7 operating system, the ElitePad S10 is in the 10 inch category of tablets sporting a 10.1 inch capacitive touchscreen and may be available either in a 1024 x 600 pixel or 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. The tablet will come with features such as a 1.3 megapixel camera, built-in ambient light sensor, a G-sensor, and with an HDMI out port. Connectivity options with the ElitePad S10 comprises of 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. The tablet is only about half an inch thick while weighing in at about 1.7 pounds.
Lastly, the tablet is built around the new 1.5 GHz Intel Atom Z670 processor coupled to 1 GB RAM. However, the battery life is still a dismal 6 hours which could benefit from some work.
