    X2 launches new tablet computer, dubs it the iTablet

    "Fresh off the heels of Apple’s iPad launch, UK manufacturer X2 today announced the launch of a new tablet computer that they have dubbed the iTablet, according to several UK sites. A slick marketing move, though Apple might not think so.

    The iTablet comes in either 10.2-inch or 12.1-inch sizes and includes an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 250 GB hard drive, a 3G chip and runs Windows 7. Coming in at 35mm thick (Apple’s iPad is 13.4mm), the iTablet might seem a bit clunky. Though the reason behind the thickness makes sense, the devices offers USB 2.0 ports, HDMI out support and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

    According to the company website, X2 manufacturers several different tablet computers and its clients are mainly in the industrial, commercial, military and government sectors. The company’s other tablet computers are much more rugged and enterprise focused than the newly launched iTablet.

    While I commend X2 for trying to push into the personal computing space, the iTablet feels more like a glorified netbook based on its specs than the competitor to Apple’s iPad that the name might suggest."

    This is quite amusing. Apple really can't complain though, since the name iPad was already registered by Fujitsu.

    This is amusing, considering that that is the name that Apple should have gone with... But that has been stated, so I won't really get into it.

    As far as the product is concerned: I look forward to seeing how tablets pan out. They failed once, and I don't see them making the same mistakes again. Their benefits over laptops and netbooks are plentiful enough to warrant decent sales across all demographics in my opinion.

    One HUGE advantage Apple seems to have is their design teams specifically try to reduce the clunkiness of their devices.

    People give up capability for reduced clunkiness. Until other companies realize this, Apple will dominate. Most people don't care if their device can do everything.
    Yes ,but IMHO Apple will dominate in the iphone customers market niche they already have. Not too many new customers only for Ipad.

    IPad is not a bad product but not complete enough

    There are not clunky Slates PC out there with better specifications than iPad.
