Netbook Navigator NAV7, NAV9 and NAV10i hands-on
NAV7 Slate PC: The new tablet is running either Intel's Atom 1.3GHz Z515 or the upgraded 1.6 GHz Z530 processors on a 7-inch multitouch LCD screen. The NAV7 tablet also has a touchpad and pair of mouse buttons on the rear of the device. At just 1.7lbs and 0.7-inches thick, makes it one of the slimmer tablets we've seen this side of CES. Shared throughout the lineup are solid state drives, with your pick of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB capacities, there's up to 2GB of RAM, a 1.3 megapixel front facing webcam, 802.11n WiFi capabilities, Bluetooth 2.1 and optional 3G connectivity through a sim card slot.
The three Netbook Navigator NAV series Windows 7 Slate PCs left a mildly good taste on our tablet tastebuds. The UI was slick and responsive, the hardware had a good solid feel to it; although we weren't a big fan of cheap and tacky hardware buttons on the NAV10i and the gimmicky-small touchpad on the NAV7. With the proper backing from of the big players, Netbook Navigation may have something going for them with these three new tablets.
