With less than six weeks before the largest technology trade show in America (CES 2007), Tablet PC innovation is heating up in the Middle East. The GITEX tradeshow in Dubai is happening now. Of the 1200 exhibitors, LG and Toshiba have stood out of the crowd showing off new evolution of Tablet PC technology.
The Toshiba M400
Reports from GITEX suggest that Toshiba has a new iteration of its Dual Core M400, specifically the M400-3G Tablet PC in the works that offers embedded HSDPA. For those who are not 100% "in the know", HSDPA is the acronym for High Speed Data Packet Access. HSDPA allows a download speed of up to 1.8 Mbps via 3G networks. There are no further specific details regarding the pricing or availability of the M400-3G at this time, however more information is sure to leak at CES in Las Vegas during the week of January 6, 2007.
LG’s C1 Express Dual Tablet PC
On the LG front the new ultra thin C1 Express Dual Tablet PC model marks the popular electronic wares company’s entrance into the Tablet PC platform. LG is no newbie in the notebook-based product market as the C1 is really an addition built on the foundation of the popular T1 and S1 series notebooks that have been around for some time now. Again at this time we have no information in regards to US availability of the slick C1 tablet, however it is of a high probability that LG will be talking more about the model in Las Vegas in January.
