NAV7 PC Tablet is now available for pre-order

Netbook Navigator, a leading provider of mobile devices, today announced the launch of the NAV7 Slate PC. Powered by Windows® 7 and loaded with innovative best-in-class features, this cutting-edge new tablet redefines the concept of wireless PC mobility. Weighing just 1.25 lbs and equipped with a 1.6GHz Intel processor, up to 2GB RAM, 1.8” Solid State hard drive with up to 64GB of storage, 2 USB ports, front-side webcam, WIFI, Bluetooth and optional embedded 3G broadband, the NAV7 is essentially a full computer that can be carried with you practically anywhere.

The product is also loaded with a unique combination of features not seen before on a 7-inch tablet, including a back-side touchpad with mouse buttons, a swappable battery good for at least 4 hours per charge, and integrated accelerometer. In addition to the NAV7’s ultra-responsive 1024×600 capacitive LCD screen, the touchpad lets users experience the full Windows environment with the accurate precision and control of a mouse click, greatly enhancing productivity and providing an alternative method for PC application management and desktop navigation.

The NAV7 is now available for pre-order in limited quantities on first come, first serve basis with over 30 different configuration options starting from $649. Orders placed in March are expected to ship in May 2011.

The Gaming Report – Because Minority Report is finally in the living room

Okay this not only registers as “gaming” but also in Windows, hardware and if there were a “awesomely cool” category I would include it there as well. Everyone talks Kinect these days – how it will revolutionize controller industry, etc. – but did anyone checked how many people actually watched (or re-watched) Minority Report these days?!

Seriously speaking though, I have to watch that movie again! No, no, no…. really serious now: The Germans at Evoluce are the first guys to show a Windows 7 interface controlled by a Kinect device.

Evoluce specializes in multitouch stuff and with a little help from Redmond and a lot of hard work I assume, they can control Windows just by hand gestures. So that first Star Trek episode where Spock showed detailed info on a planet navigating with his hands, or the April first joke from Opera when you could control the browser with face gestures – may not seem so funny now.

Anyway, as you can see in these videos, you can browse through media, resize stuff, arrange icons, scroll through web pages, zoom in or out of webpages and maps, draw stuff, and who knows how many more things will pop up into people’s mind once the foundation for this stuff is established.

And to all the naysayers who claim – for a good reason – mouse interaction is faster, I say the same as I do with voice control. Not only it’s cooler this way, but you don’t have to use just gesture or voice navigation. You can combine methods to increase the speed you interact with devices a lot if you’re smart! It really depends on the purpose they serve as well – a presentation in a crowded conference room for example is the perfect place to use your hands skill…
