OpenPeak hasn’t nailed down a solid direction for their OpenTablet yet, but they’ve lined up a partner to supply its mobile Internet: AT&T.
AT&T* and OpenPeak Inc, a leading provider of multimedia touch-screen devices and device management platforms, today announced a powerful, multipurpose computing tablet device ideal for the home and on the go equipped with AT&T mobile broadband wireless service. The thin, elegant device, to be based on OpenPeak’s ultra-sleek OpenTablet™ touch-screen design, will combine communications, entertainment and home management capabilities, and will be available nationwide via multiple retail distribution channels expected later this year. The OpenTablet is based on Intel’s next generation handheld platform, codenamed “Moorestown,” which delivers outstanding performance at low power.
As discussed previously, OpenTablet has a broad range of potential with apps developed with Flash, and now they have mobile Internet connectivity lined up, but they still haven’t spelled out how specifically they see this thing being used. Not concrete enough for me yet.
