Canada based ExoPC have already put up its tablet of the same name up for sale in its homeland. And now, it’s time for US consumers to pre-order one for them. You can book one at the Microsoft Store as it is accepting pre-orders for the tablet at $699.

This nifty piece of hardware is equipped with an 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and is powered by an Intel Atom N450 CPU, 64GB solid state disk, 2GB of RAM and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. What’s more, you get a custom interface to go with the OS that helps easy navigation using your fingertips. Liliputing reports that there is a major software update on the way which will arrive shortly and another in January where a custom on-screen keyboard is expected. The tablet has been found to have good build quality, a responsive screen, and a well-laid out interface. Battery life has been found to be about 3.5 hours or less of run time when tested by Liliputing.

The tablet should reach your doorsteps within a week if you pre-order now or you can get one from one of Microsoft’s retail stores within the same time period. From the looks of it, the device sounds like a good buy, although the battery life is a tad disappointing.
