OpenPeak's OpenTablet Gains AT&T 3G WWAN, Just Like The iPad

OpenPeak's OpenTablet make a debut last month, but it was quickly forgotten in the wake of Apple's iPad launching and a number of other major competitors hitting the scene as well. There's no reminder like a reminder that involves one of the major for U.S. cell operators, though, and that's exactly what's being announced this week.

AT&T and OpenPeak have chosen to collaborate and add 3G WWAN services to the ultra-sleek OpenTablet, a touch-screen tablet that will be based on Intel's Moorestown platform. It will also have 802.11n/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and access to the OpenPeak Device Management Services/OpenPeak App Shop. The company is included a lot of extras here that aren't usually found on tablets; for example, device management allows providers to remotely provision, monitor and update the tablet over a broadband networ, while the  OpenPeak App Shop brings consumers and third-party developers together to enable a wide range of multimedia and home management applications.



We are also learning more about the specifications: it will be powered by an Intel Atom chipset and have a 7" multi-touch display, an HDMI output, USB interface, MicroSD slot, and a case that measures 9"x5"x0.59". The whole tablet will weigh just 1.15lbs., though it's not clear if AT&T will sell these directly. At any rate, we're still waiting for a set price to be announced, but with integrated 3G (just like the iPad), this one really feels like a strong contender.

Like I stated there is no shortage of wireless devices and mobile phone's entering the market, as I see this trend continuing for the next few years at a fast rate. I am astounded At&T has not upgraded to 4G yet I guess they know their capacity limit better than I do.

I'm not sure why everyone is just using AT&T. I have Verizon and it has a bigger, more stable network, as well as the LTE network going to start spawning soon. I guess I just have to wait for a slate tablet with a full Microsoft OS to get some Verizon goodness.

I am very surprised that these companies are not integrating phones into these tablets. You would figure that Apple would lead the way in that respect since the IPad is a scaled up IPhone.

If they are going to pair with the cellular companies wouldn't that make sense? I guess the Blutooth connectivity on this thing could be used for VOIP. Then when you have it sitting on your kitchen counter, you can also touchscreen the phone to your earpiece. What is the point of having Blutooth and 3G on something like this when you cant call as well.

Instead of talking about all these new smart phones. I am sure that this time next year we will all be talking about these Pads new calling features. Of course after this summer I am sure there will be alot of buyers remorse from people who rushed out to get all the new tablets. When the new ones come out for Christmas with phone/stylus and 4G capabilities :P

Although this one does look pretty neat, I wonder if it can be used as a home theatre universal remote?
