Onkyo's 7-inch tablet PC with integrated GPS module


Onkyo Japan has announced a few notebooks today, all of which are in fact re-branded (but beefed up) models competitor Kohjinsha released earlier on the Japanese market. Perhaps the most interesting new model is the NX707A4 [JP], a 7-inch tablet netbook with an built-in GPS module.

The tablet is powered by Atom Z520 processor (1.33 GHz) and has an 80GB HDD, 1GB RAM, Intel US15W chipset, two USB ports, an ExpressCard/34 slot, SD/SDHC/MMC/Memory Stick Pro slots, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11n Wi-Fi and two web cams (3MP and 0.3MP) on board. The display is a touch screen with 1,024×600 resolution.

NX707A4_02Buyers will get Windows 7 starter as the OS and can expect a battery life of about 3 hours. The NX707A4 weighs 720g and is sized at 193 x 132 x 22 – 30mm.


Onkyo will start selling the device in Japan at the end of this month (price: $680). The company hasn’t said yet if it plans to sell the tablet outside this country as well so you might want to contact import/export specialist Geek Stuff 4 U if you want to get one.
