Gateway coming with a new 12.1" convertible Tablet PC

Many of you have come to know GBM reader, Kevin Bals, through his insightful tips that he faithfully passes along to us.

This one is very interesting as it introduces a new 12.1″ convertible into the market from Gateway. I’ll let Kevin speak for himself:


I just got back from a 2 day technology conference for school administrators. I spoke to the Gateway rep and he told me in March Gateway will be releasing a 12.1 Tablet PC with built in optical drive, weighing around 4lbs. 

We’ll see what more we can gather about this new tablet coming from Gateway. Known for their aggressive pricing, I’m sure Gateway will be moving alot of these. Hopefully, like their 14″ convertible, we’ll start seeing these showing up in the retail sector, too.
