Chinese manufacturer Malata has pumped out numerous smartbooks over the years, including an 8.9″ Sony Vaio P clone, a larger 10-inch Vaio P clone and the odd random one like the T9000 and now they’re teasing their latest one, the PC-B1002, at an electronics fair over in Hong Kong. It’s a Tegra 2 10-incher, much like the Toshiba . Unfortunately only a pamphlet of the device so we’ll have to wait for Computex to see it for real, which kicks off at the end of May. I don’t expect anything mind blowing here with the actual hardware but we’re glad just to even see smartbooks these days, even though they had never taken off (yet).
The specs – a 1GHz Tegra 2 chip, Pre-honeycomb Android, 10″ 1024 x 600 display, 2GB / 4GB or 8GB of flash storage, 512MB / 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 1.3MP webcam, optional 3G and a 2200mAh battery. Size is 266 x 180 x 25mm with a weight of around 1.1kg.
