SKYTEX Skytab S tablet lands at FCC, will use EXOPC interface

The EXOPC UI will now be coming standard in the Windows 7 Skytab S tablet purportedly slated for October

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
