Intel's certainly taken the lid off some interesting gear at this year's IDF
, but this is a little disappointing -- that cool-looking slate / tablet PC the company was teasing this afternoon
is a Panasonic tablet aimed at the healthcare industry, just as we suspected. Put in that context, it's nothing special at all, really -- we've seen tons
from various manufacturers, and Panny's been putting out similar Toughbook
tablets for some time, including the Atom-based CF-U1
. Guess you can't win 'em all -- but at least the guessing was fun for a while.
