Lightest tablet pc



Keywords: lightest tablet pc, tablet pcs
Description: They're intended to be as portable as a pad of paper, yet most tablet PCs are still too heavy.

The idea behind Microsoft ‘s Tablet PC is to make the PC as easy to use and walk around with as a pad of paper.

Yet few of the tablet PCs we’ve seen have felt really light enough and thin enough that we’d consider walking around with one for an entire day.

That was until NEC Solutions America. a division of Japan’s NEC. showed us a prototype of its first tablet PC, dubbed the Versa LitePad. The company unveiled the product at the Comdex trade show that is running through the end of the week. It’s only four-fifths of an inch thick and weighs about two pounds, which by our reckoning would make it the thinnest and lightest among the whole tablet PC lineup.

It’s not available yet, but should hit the market in the first quarter of next year when it will command a price that should top out at about $2,500.

NEC has done some interesting work with its notebook PCs that it could use in tablets. Its Versa Daylight line of notebooks has an LCD screen that is designed to be seen best in direct sunlight, meaning it’s one of the few notebooks that’s still usable poolside in the summer. The brighter the sunlight, the brighter the screen. And though it’s a bit dim indoors, it doesn’t consume much power. We mention it only because the same LCD screen might be a useful feature in one model of tablet PC down the road.

Other details about the LitePad haven’t been released: We know it will contain a processor chip from Intel. though NEC couldn’t say how fast that chip will be. Hard drive size has not been finalized. And display size and resolution has yet to finalized as well.

But it’s hard to argue with what appears to be the lightest machine in the entire product class. NEC says it’s going to offer the machine directly to selected vertical markets initially, including health care, manufacturing and retail. In those fields, there are a lot of people who spend a good deal of time on their feet and away from desks and cubicles. For them, the lighter the better.
