An Alternative to iPad- ExoPC Slate

Recently announced Apple’s iPad tablet which was very much hyped before its release, but when announced it did lack lots of features. Although the iPad has rock solid performance and a competitive price, its lack of Flash was perceived as the biggest drawback and this meant that the new device was incompatible with a very large number of websites. If you are looking for an alternative, ExoPC slate has all the features which the iPad lacks. The product will be running Windows 7 and will have a user-replaceable battery.


The 8.9 inch screen of ExoPC Slate depicts a multi-tasking interface and it has ultra-fast scrolling and full support for all formats including Flash to open and view all your favorite websites. It also features an onscreen keypad for typing easily.


It also comes with ability to watch live TV and other videos and also features a Radio. You can store and read digital books in any format.
