Default Windows 8 Tablet Review: Kupa X11

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.netbooknews.com/36950/kupa-x11-windows-8-tablet-walk-through/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed:+netbooknews/nbn+(Netbook+News)' target='_blank'>http://www.netbooknews.com/36950/ku...+(Netbook+News)</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Windows 8 tablets are just around the corner but and tablet maker Kupa is showing off the X11 running the upcoming operating systems.&nbsp; It was great to play around with a tablet that has Windows 8 navigation up and running."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/PvbxTp7tMlM&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/PvbxTp7tMlM&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=&amp;fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Interesting to see Windows 8 and the new Metro UI running (and running pretty well for a prototype) on a tablet. Retailing starting at $699, the 900 gram, 10.1-inch X11 sports an Intel Atom processor, a 1366x768 semi-gloss high-res screen, 2GB RAM, front and rear cameras, a nice collection of ports, and a 64GB SSD. For $999 (or $799 per the video) the X11 adds 3G service, and ups the SSD to 128GB. No details were provided on availability, or on a critical component, battery life. To me, the X11 looked a bit bulky (thick), and a bit unwieldy, but again, it's a prototype, not a finished product. Thoughts?</p>
