Most tablets that hit the shelves have a very similar look and feel, so the Cregle PenBook is a pleasant deviation with its sparse modern design.  This Windows 7 tablet comes with a digital pen and an active digitizer which you can use to write on the display which supports multi-touch, gestures and palm rejection.

The display seems very intuitive, with touch sensitive areas above and below the display, kind of like on the Playbook.  You can use these to adjust screen brightness with a swipe. You can also use the Touch Bars to enter customized commands or keyboard combinations such as Page Up or Down, or Ctrl+Alt+Del.  All of these are very useful for navigation around Windows 7 which isn’t built for touch.

The Penbook has a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, which isn’t going to win any power competitions or provide you with strong multitasking capabilities.  However, this low power chip will allow you to get about 6 hours from the 5000Mah replaceable battery.

The Cregle PenBook has 2 USB ports (1 host and 1 device), a headset jack, a built-in mic, stereo speakers, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  This 10.1″  tablet has a 1024 x 600 pixel display and measures 10.4″ a 7.2″ x 0.7″ and weighs 2.3 pounds. and we have no word on a price or release date.
