OpenPeak’s OpenTablet to Taste AT&T Connectivity

Wireless carrier AT&T and OpenPeak Inc, leading provider of multimedia touch-screen devices, recently announced the launch of a new powerful, multipurpose computing tablet device boasting support for AT&T's mobile broadband wireless service, based on the ultra-sleek OpenTablet. According to the pair, the upcoming device is expected to deliver communications, entertainment and home management capabilities, and should become available for purchase later during the ongoing year.

The tablet will come with AT&T wireless connectivity, while also sporting 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, and will be based on Intel’s next generation handheld platform, codenamed “Moorestown.” The device is set to prove a great option for social networking activities, Internet browsing, music, video and photo sharing, or instant messaging.

At the same time, the OpenTablet includes the OpenPeak Device Management Services, as well as the OpenPeak App Shop, its maker notes. Users will enjoy the possibility to remotely provision, monitor and update the tablet via the device management solution, while the app portal will offer access to a series of multimedia and home management software solutions from third-party developers.

“OpenTablet is an exciting multipurpose device with all the benefits and flexibility of a wirelessly connected personal computing and entertainment device,” said Glenn Lurie, president, emerging devices, resale and partnerships, AT&T<. “When you combine the capabilities of OpenTablet with AT&T’s 3G mobile broadband service and AT&T Wi-Fi service, we’re able to provide consumers wireless access to content they most desire, right at their fingertips.”

The tablet is powered by an Intel Atom chipset, comes with a high-resolution 7-inch multi-touch TFT LCD screen, and sports an HDMI output, USB interface and MicroSD slot for additional storage space to be added into the equation. The device measures 9 inches by 5 inches, and is only 0.59 inches thick, while weighing in at 1.15 pounds. Users will enjoy a wide range of features on the device, especially with the connectivity with AT&T’s 3G mobile broadband network it will include.

“We strongly believe that people are ready for a thin, easy to use device that brings together virtually every entertainment, communications and management function anyone could want,” said Dan Gittleman, CEO of OpenPeak. “Our agreement with AT&T unites a number of powerful technologies, resulting in a product that will provide a variety of exciting uses, for many different types of consumers.”
