North American’s in search of the perfect tablet PC Steve Job would never make, won’t have to wait much longer. Gigabyte’s S1080 made its way through the FCC offices last week, and is expected to be made available here in the next few months. The tablet has been on sale in Taiwan since mid-April, and is pretty much the anti iPad in every way possible. Under the S1080’s 10-inch 1024x600 res display, sits a dual core Atom N550 processor, along with a 320 GB hard drive preloaded with Windows 7.
Wrapping up our final day at CES 2011 (which has already been tablet cuh-razy), Senior Editor Gordon Mah Ung takes a quick video look at Gigabyte's foray into the tablet realm. The S1080 is running a full build of Windows 7, powered by an Intel Atom N550. The capacitive, backlit LED screen cranks to a 1024x600 resolution, and the device features USB 3.0 slots on the rear end. Pretty exciting if you ask us.
