PeeWee Pivot Tablet Launches

peeweeHere come the PeeWee PCs. Launched yesterday the PeeWee Pivot Tablet PC is designed for the younger set and the convertible PCs look to be a lot of fun. Based on the Intel Classmate PC, the Pee Wee PC can be used as a slate or a conventional net/notebook and includes software designed for the kiddies, and also a security suite to protect them from the bad guys out there.

The Touchscreen device is listed as having a spill proof keyboard, and shock proof outer shell. It comes with a stylus and most of the Netbook specs we all know by heart this days from a device running Intel’s Atom chipset.

It is priced a little high in my opinion at $599, especially when you can get a similarly spec’d Netbook for less than that. But then hey, I guess the thinking is the kid factor is worth the extra bucks.

    What touch type devices (of similar size) would you suggest in this price range? Any thoughts on whether the touch capabilities (handwriting mainly) are worth the extra cost over a standard netbook?
