The Acer C300 earned a finalist award from the eWeek Excellence Awards

It’s hard to cry over finishing on the second tier, behind the IBM T series notebooks. The eWeek judges were impressed by the C300, which usually finds itself looking up at the Toshiba M series, in the Tablet world. This is big for Acer and Tablet to get this level of recognition.

The TravelMate C300’s combination of a large screen and fast processor at a competitive price made Acer’s Tablet PC a finalist in this year’s Excellence Awards. The C300 continues Acer’s top-flight Excellence presence: Last year, the company’s C100 was the category winner.

With a 14-inch screen, this convertible Tablet PC can serve as a mobile solution and a desktop replacement system.

Judges were most impressed with the C300’s integrated light sensor, which automatically adjusts screen brightness based on available ambient light and remembers those settings for the next time a similar lighting condition occurs.,1759,1561437,00.asp compares some of the latest PDAs and smartphones with the 5000D series tablet from Fujitsu

Navigating the Internet with the Fujitsu tablet PC was convenient. You can use the pen to scroll vertically and horizontally, or you can press the scroll buttons located on the right side of the unit. You can also use voice commands to carry out menu functions, including Back, Forward and Home.

If you’re looking for a portable Internet device that doesn’t compromise screen size, a tablet might be for you.
