SAN FRANCISCO -- Tatung Science and Technology today unveiled two new models of tablet PC, TTAB-A12D and TTAB-910E. The new advanced 12.1'' TTAB-A12D can be configured with a 1.6 GHz Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor LV 768 with 2MB L2 cache or Intel 1GHz Celeron M processor ULV 373 with 512KB L2 cache.

It can be operated either by using a stylus for handwriting, sketching or mark-up, or with an optional keyboard or docking station.

High Performance Configurations with Built in Biometric Fingerprint Security

A unique security system is integrated with the TTAB-A12D to limit unauthorized access the new Tatung tablets through Omni Pass AP biometric fingerprint recognition. With the integrated OmniPass software, access to the system is controlled by a sensor that requires users to swipe a finger to access password-protected Web sites, programs, and other log-ons that can be configured by users or administrators.

For communications, the TTAB-A12D tablet features WLAN 802.11 a/b/g or b/g via Mini PCI; a 56K V.92 Modem card; and IrDA on the motherboard.

Audio support is AC-97 Rev 2.2/2.3/Azalia compliant with integrated stereo speakers and an integrated full duplex microphone; and an optional array microphone. The unit also includes a card bus slot for Type I/II, Mini-PCI, MDC.

The TTAB-A12D weighs only 3.08lbs (1.4Kg) and its dimensions are 9.13"x11.92"x0.73"; 232mm (W) x 303mm (H) x 18.6mm. The system includes a Lithium Ion (5400mAh @7.4V) battery pack with up to 4hr battery life (depending on configuration and applications) with a 6-cell battery pack; support for S3 hot swap features and an AC adapter 12V DC power supply.

Docking Station Allows for Different Viewing Angles

The TTAB-A12D can be rotated 90 degrees by using the optional docking station. It allows users to view the tablet in portrait or landscape format. When the tablet is rotated on the cradle, the on-screen image also automatically rotates, and it can be inclined for four different viewing angles.

"The light weight and slim dimensions of the new TTAB-A12D tablets make them ideal for applications in healthcare, insurance, education, inventory management, manufacturing and other areas that require users to carry the units for long periods of time, while the TTAB-910E provides affordable entry level Tablet PC for vertical applications," said James Hwang Director of Tatung Science and Technology, Inc.
