Averatec Tablet PC: “Orders are going through the roof,” says Averatec

Editors Note: I knew it… I knew it.  I have been convinced that the holdup of the popularity of the Tablet PC and this flavor of computing catching on was primarily due to 2 issues.

1. Price

2. OS

I am so damn excited to get my hands on this new C3500 Tablet from Averatec that I am pratically losing sleep over it.  (I am expecting a review unit from Averatec any day now).  This model is the first to offer an attractive price (and palatible at around $1300 bucks).  Not to mention that it is preloaded with the Lonestar Tablet OS update.  Is this the “Messiah” of today’s Tablet PC offerings or what?  I can’t wait to show you as soon as that baby hits our mailbox!  In the meanwhile, check out this story:

Averatec is pleased with its launch of its C3500 Tablet PC. “Orders are going through the roof,” an Averatec representative told us this afternoon. It offers the low introductory price that many people have been seeking, a convertible design, power, and expandability too.

After we posted photos of the
