CTL has been a name thrown around from time to time in the tablet universe, but the rumors are giving way to an official announcement this week on the 2goPad. The new 2goPad SL10 is a 10" device with a multi-touch display, Intel
Atom N450 CPU (1.66GHz), 2GB of memory, Windows 7 and a rather sleek design.
It's one of the first Windows tablet
PCs to come to market, and it includes 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, two USB ports, a 250GB hard drive, and an SD card reader. Since it runs a full version of Windows 7, it can handle Flash, HTML5 and any other format that Windows 7 can handle. The company also bundles in a VGA adapter for an external monitor as well as a case, with a grand total listing of $499.
Is this just the beginning of a flood of Windows 7 tablets that we'll see prior to Christmas? We're guessing so.
