The OpenTablet 7 has a custom Linux variant and UI, and the heart of the machine is a 1.9 GHz Moorestown chip from Intel. RAM and storage are still unknown, but the dual-camera setup (1080p on the front, 5 megapixels on the back) is enticing. There is port replication via a dock, but the tablet itself still has HDMI, USB and microSD. Like the PlayBook and Galaxy Tab, the OpenTablet 7 is a seven-inch tablet with a 1024x600 resolution screen.
OpenPeak is really pushing home automation and integration with this platform. From energy consumption monitoring to security integration to controlling your home theater, the OpenTablet has a lot to offer in its own custom application space. You aren’t dealing with the Android Marketplace here, but rather OpenPeak’s own SDK and application service platform.
As for availability, OpenPeak has some sort of deal with AT&T in the works. The tablet might stay “vanilla” and simply use AT&Ts 3G network, or the carrier could rebrand the tablet and tie in its own services. Either way, the OpenTablet 7 is a potent device with a lot of apps and services to offer.
