Reportedly, the tablet’s performance is fast, responsive and fluid. OMAP product manager Bill Crean said, “It hasn’t been easy, because it was new work for everyone involved”.

OMAP processor has significant power advantage. Crean added, “We can achieve connected standby—Intel can’t . . . It’s a level of power ARM and OMAP can achieve, and tablets based on our platform will just have longer battery life”.

Unfortunately, no more details has not been revealed about the touchscreen clamshell device. You can, however, watch the demo video embedded below.
