這次在Computex中,NEC好像沒有展區,只有小小的展示空間放著兩個Android平板。兩款都是七吋設計,不過其中一款是雙螢幕設計(如上圖)。這兩款平板的規格老實說不高,採用ARM Cortex A8處理器,記憶體Mobile DDR 384MB/ROM 1024MB(含系統區),至於螢幕,則是採用電阻式。雙螢幕平板重要530克,單螢幕則是370克。數位相機則是300萬像素,具SD卡插槽,一個MicroUSB,一個標準USB。至於感測器有GPS定位、加速度感應、地磁感應、LCD亮度調節感應,具備手寫筆。

預計將於第三季在台上市,目前兩款平板都是Android 2.1,待上市後應該就是Android 2.2版本。

In this Computex, NEC seem to have no showroom but a small display booth with two Android tablet. Both tablets are 7" in size, however one of them is dual-display (as shown above). In terms of spec, both of them are quite average - ARM Cortex A8 processor, Mobile DDR 384MB / 1048MB ROM (including system block), and resistive type touch screen. In terms of weight, 530g for dual-screen model and 370g for single-screen model. 3 Megapixels for camera, SD card slot, one microUSB, one standard USB. Sensors includes GPS positioning, accelerometer(s), magnetic field sensor, LCD brightness adjustment sensor. Stylus included.

Both models are Android 2.1 at the moment, which should be upgraded to Android 2.2 by the time they hit the market in Q3 (for Taiwan market).

至於單螢幕,基本上在規格比較不如人的情況下,很難有什麼賣點,真要說的話,大概就是三百多公克這點,算是一個吧。再不然就是外形還OK,不過在規格不算強的情形下,這款可能不是這麼討喜。
For the single-screen model, with a quite ordinary spec, its hard to say there is any selling point apart from its light weight, which is 370g, and its kind of okay appearance. However, without a powerful spec, this model may not prove to be so popular.

雙螢幕的重點應用,就是電子書囉。
One important application for dual-screen, e-book

翻頁效果。
Page-flip effect.

另一個吸引我的,就是可以雙螢幕可以各用各的軟體。
Each screen can have its own separate software application.

由於預載軟體不多,我也不是很清楚是不是每個軟體都OK,在現場隨意試了相機以及計算機程式。
The selection of pre-loaded software applications is quite limited, so it is unclear that every single software application can be executed correctly under dual-screen mode. Camera/Calculation application is chosen out of random for testing.

左邊出現拍照的介面,右邊出現計算機。
Camera interface on the left, calculator on the right.

又另外試了兩種功能,左邊是瀏覽螢幕,右邊是gmail。
Tried another two applications, browser on the left-hand side, gmail on the right-hand side.

不過,若是進入了設定畫面,右邊是母選項,左邊則是子選項。也就是兩列式的呈現。
However, once in setting screen, it's two-level navigation with main options on the right-hand screen and sub options on the left-hand screen.

相關的按鍵操作在右下角。
Function and navigation buttons, located at lower-right hand corner.
就個人來看,好像是可以兩邊各自獨立使用。
From personal observation, it seem to be the case where each screen can be operated independently.

具備觸控筆的設計。
Equipped with stylus.


至於白色的單螢幕機種:
As for white single screen model:

單螢幕機種,就不具備太多的賣點,大概重量輕算是一個吧,不到400克。外形也是不錯,個人還滿好奇這樣的機子在台灣是要賣多少錢?至於其他硬體規格就與雙螢幕機種差不多。不過從側面的連接介面來看,這款應該有底座的設計,但現場沒有看到。
Single screen model, not many selling points, may be light weight is one of it, less than 400g. One would be very interested to know its RRP when its made available to general market. Spec wise, this one is almost the same as dual-screen model, however, the interface slot on the side suggest this model may have some sort of docking station option available to it.
