Netbook Navigator NAV 9 Slate PC Win7 Tablet Review

Imagine holding a complete PC desktop environment in the palm of your hands. With the launch of the world’s most versatile keyless 9″ Windows 7 tablet, what was once fantasy has now become reality. At just 0.8″ thick and barely 2 lbs. light, the NAV9 is just half the size of a standard 9-10″ netbook. With so much power in such a compact form factor, the NAV9 redefines the concept of mobile productivity. Featuring a Solid State HDD, Intel ATOM Processor and the world’s most powerful operating system, you can multi-task like a pro while on-the-go like never before.

The NAV9 is the first of its kind to feature an 8.9″ Multi-touch low-pressure resistive LCD screen with passive digitizer technology, enabling pinpoint accurate response to both finger and stylus. The touchscreen is durable and pressure sensitive, so it will respond to your touch while wearing gloves or with a pen cap, for example. The NAV9 can be easily gripped in one hand, and the desktop can quickly be rotated from Landscape to Portrait with Windows Mobility Center, making it a perfect tool for note-taking, book reading, web browsing, and more!

Loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium and equipped with an Intel ATOM 1.66GHz Processor, 2GB RAM, 1.8″ 16GB Solid State HDD, 1.3 MegaPixel front-side webcam, Wi-Fi 802.11n, and Bluetooth 2.1, there is no doubt the NAV9 represents a whole new class of PC mobility.

Not one, not two, but THREE (3) USB ports adds an incredible amount of expansion possibilities for easy synchronization with peripherals such Flash memory sticks, external keyboards, DVD-ROMs, video cameras, mp3 players and GPS receivers. The built-in SD Card slot adds another dimension, providing an alternative method for memory expansion and the ability to sync with other unique accessories, including barcode scanners and magnetic card readers.

The slim “keyless” design feels sturdy and solid to hold, and with no delicate internal moving parts to worry about, the NAV9 will protect your files securely, even if the hardware is shaken or dropped. What’s more, at just 0.8″ thick, the whole tablet easily fits into nearly any carrying case, briefcase or backpack for amazing portability.

Loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium, the world’s most powerful operating system, the NAV9 offers familiar desktop navigation at your fingertips in a unique and easily accessible form factor. With enterprise class multi-tasking, run multiple PC applications simultaneously and get more done in a shorter amount of time. Unlike other tablets that only run one or two applications at a time, the NAV9 can handle any number of programs running without limitation.
