What happened to Averatec?

I was updating our HardGoods page and noticed on the Averatec site that they have removed the C3500 Tablet PC from their list of products. They have hidden the C3500 under “Previously released and refurbished” products and now don’t have any Tablet PCs listed under their list of available products.


That is too bad. Averatec paved the way for low priced tablets, even though they did have some quality control issues on the outset. Based on their new products not supporting tablet functionality, it makes me wonder how successful they were with the C3500.

That said, there are rumors of Averatec producing a UMPC. So don’t count them out of the tablet pc business altogether, yet.
