If you blink, you'll probably miss out on another tablet announcement. IN Media is releasing one this week, but unlike the bulk of them, this one is using Windows 7. Few Win7 tablets have been released on the market, and there definitely needs to be increased competition in that area. The company's Windows 7 Tablet PC has a 1.66GHz Atom processor, a 160GB hard drive, an HDMI output, a forward-facing camera, 10" LCD touch screen, a headphone jack, a couple of USB ports and an SD card slot. All that for $399, which definitely undercuts some of the bigger names out there. Have a look below for a video of the device in use.
