Three New Models Feature Sleek Form Factor and Faster Processors

Torrance, CA, February 6, 2007 -
TabletKiosk™, a leader in mobile computing solutions, today announced the launch of the Sahara Slate PC® i400 series, the company's newest generation of Tablet PCs featuring both Active Digitizer (Pen) and Touch Screen input. Completely redesigned for 2007, the new Sahara series includes three models which share the same sleek exterior styling, technology platform, I/O feature set and full range of optional accessories.

Sahara Slate PC i412T is the entry level touch screen model featuring a lower power, lower cost Intel® Celeron® M ULV 423 processor. The Sahara Slate PC i412T sports a wide-angle view passive resistive touch screen, perfect for accessing menu driven software such as Point of Sale applications and kiosk-based systems, and comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Microsoft Windows Vista Business or Linux.

The Sahara Slate PC i440D will be available with Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005, Linux or the new Windows Vista Business OS which elevates the existing Sahara Slate PC brand into new performance territory.

"We are thrilled with the tremendous support and excitement we are seeing from our partners around the world in support of Windows Vista," said Brad Goldberg, general manager for Windows at Microsoft.
