While we are being swamped with devices running the Android operating system, the Windows 7 is also making its presence felt. Here is one more to add to that growing list the Tycoon TVB00 from the Taiwan based First International Computer Inc.Also, before you shrug off the Tycoon as just another tablet device running Windows 7, there might be more to it this time. FIC has worked extensively with Microsoft in an effort at alleviating one of the major grouses of Win 7 – its responsiveness on a touchscreen environment as the popular Microsoft OS was primarily made for use on devices with an attached keyboard as well as a mouse acting as a pointing device.
These apart, the inside story of the Tycoon consists of a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory along with a 120 GB hard drive. A 10.1 inch capacitive touchscreen makes up the display area while the entire thing weighs a quite convenient 840 grams.The Tycoon will go on sale in Taiwan from November 13th onwards with a price tag of NT$19,800 which comes out to US$657. It will be sold through U-Life TV shopping channel with Vibo Telecom Inc acting as the telecom partner.
