You might remember back in September last year when Korean based Ocosmos landed on everyone’s radar with a couple of Intel Oak Trail MIDs due out this year – the OCS1 5-incher and the OCS9 9-incher. We’ve just been tipped off with some renders of supposedly, the OCS9 and it barely resembles the slide-down keyboard device shown briefly last year. Heck, there’s no slide down keyboard anymore but one thing remains consistent – these devices have gaming in mind, which is odd given the platform it’s powered by.

The tablet is 9-inch in size, with a 4:3 ratio, 1024 x 768 capacitive touch display, a 1.5GHz Oak Trail processor, 2GB DDR2 RAM and either a 32 or 64GB SSD, 1.3MP front and 3.0MP rear cameras, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, USB 2.0 ports, MicroSD card slot, all running with Windows 7 with some kind of touch friendly sugar coating on top – the display specs remain unchanged from that earlier announcement. We don’t know the weight but size comes at 241 x 156 x 14.2 mm.

If that we’re all it’d make a pretty poor gaming device but luckily there’s a wireless li-poly battery powered ‘Surfboard’ d-Pad controller to provide much needed tactile feedback while doubling as a touch screen keyboard and remote control for apps like Windows Media Center. There’s no mention of battery life for the tablet or this controller.

Last we heard this device was expected to launch in Q2 for around $500, but that’s when it had a slide down keyboard and had a different chassis. I guess we’ll find out in a few days.
