The ExoPC tablet, which has been teasing MID fans since the beginning of the year, seems to be closer to being released to tablet fans out there. A prototype version has been shown on video by Alexandre Vallieres-Lagace at Blogue de Geek who got to sit down with the developers and take it for a test drive.




The final product name is planned to be the ExoPC "Slate" and runs a full version of Windows 7. 2GB of onboard ram keep things trucking along and a 8.9 inch screen with a max resolution of 1366x768 in full screen mode. With 2 USB ports, an HDMI port, and a headphone and microphone port, this tablet will not be hurting for connectivity and Lagace was impressed with the video playback made possible by the Broadcom chipset Crystal HD which also puts the CPU into idle when watching a movie.


Four models are slated to become available: 32gb WiFi, 32GB WiFI + 3G GPS, 64GB WiFi GPS, and 64GB WiFi + 3G GPS. The ExoPC slate is expected to make a worldwide showing at Computex in June. For now, here's a look at the video to tide you over:
