While AMD’s Bobcat-based Fusion APUs have been pretty successful in the ultra-portable notebook market, the chipmaker’s lone tablet-optimized Z01 “Desna” APU has found few takers. But even that wasn’t enough to stop Taiwan-based company BungBungame from building a business tablet around the Z01, which combines two 1GHz Bobcat cores and a Radeon HD 6250 graphics core on the same die. Hit the jump for more.

Called the Photon 100, the tablet sports a 10.1-inch multi-touch display and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. The Desna-based slate packs 4GB RAM and a 64GB SSD. The device is a little on the heavier side with a weight of around 1.9 pounds. Scheduled to go on sale in its home market in February, the Photon 100 will have a price tag of around US$662 (NT$20,000) there.

The company will be bringing the slate to the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show with an eye on the international market, according to Digitimes .
