W7Pad: Windows Tablet for Power Users

PDF Print E-mail

w7Pad2011 is the Year of the Tablets, if you can get your hands on them. BMx Computers from Belgium is already shipping its W7Pad in two models-- and looking for distribution partners throughout EMEA.

Tablets come in three main flavours: iPad, Android or Windows. W7Pad is, of course, Windows and the Windows interface is their preferred one for PC power users, those prosumers of PCs.

This is not the cheap, bottom end of the device market whose twin brother is a smartphone. Instead, the DNA of a W7Pad shows a true computing heritage. The W7Pad is a large-screened tablet that’s spec’d powerfully enough to run Windows 7 well...and that makes all the difference.

With Intel Pineview-M™ N450 (1.66 Ghz, 512 Kb cache, 667Mhz) at the heart, W7Pad has an Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator 500 offering discrete 1080p HD video acceleration for video playback.

All the features that Windows users complain about missing with iPAD (the USB, the Flash, the webcam, Mini- HDMI and more) are included with the W7Pad. The screen is 11.6” HD Glare Multi Touch Finger Friendly with G-Sensor orientation (the resolution at 1355 x 768 is actually higher than the current iPAD).

Tablets need to be lightweight and these 950gm BMx models are only 14mm thin.

With the Model 204 you get a SSD with 32 GB and 1 GB DDR2, while the Model 208 bumps up to 64GB and 2 GB DDR2.

w7padWi-Fi is standard on both models and 3G (with HSPA 7.2 Mbps A-GPS function) is standard integrated on the Model 208.

Battery gives the user full Windows power for about 4-5 hours. After that, you have a Tablet Docking Station that’s also ready for the power user: in the base are three USB ports, audio in and out, and even an RJ-45 10/100 LAN. Even while W7Pad is nicely docked, it can play a movie or act as a photo frame, digital radio or just a conveniently large digital clock (for those of us on deadlines!)

Your customers can choose their Windows 7 option: HOME premium, PROfessional or Ultimate (to match the type of the end-user).

BMx offers a Standard 2-year warranty and free helpline which you won’t see with the toy tablets out there. After their start in Benelux last month, BMx’s goal now is to set up European distribution for W7Pad.

The W7Pad powered by BMx will be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress Barcelona and at CeBIT 2011.
