SKYTEX Skytab S tablet lands at FCC, will use EXOPC interface
California-based global supplier SKYTEX announced Friday its plans to team up with tablet developer EXOPC to offer improved touchscreen interfaces for the Skytab S-series Windows 7 tablet.
“The EXOPC team is proud to launch a customized touch-friendly UI on the Skytab S-series dual-core tablet,” said Shan Ahdoot, CEO of EXOPC.
So, what exactly makes the EXOPC interface so special? According to an EXOPC tablet review at Liliputing, the interface is a tablet-optimized UI built on top of the comparatively touch-unfriendly Windows 7 UI. The new overlain interface should support multi-touch and offer improved responsiveness with its own web browser and apps.
As for the specs of the Skytab S-series, the 9.7-inch tablet will run on a dual-core 1.5GHz Atom N550 processor, 2GB RAM and include a 1024x768 resolution screen with 320GB HDD, HDMI-out, 2x USB 2.0, microSD reader, 1.3MP front-facing webcam and optional 3G. This particular tablet will be the first 9.7-inch device to use the EXOPC interface, says Liliputing.
The SKYTEX tablet could be shipping as early as this October and has already landed at the FCC for approval.
