IN Media unveils Windows 7 PC Tablet ‘iPad killer’ (with video)

IN Media Corp. today announced the release of the “Windows 7 Tablet PC.” The Windows 7 Tablet PC tries to run the full Windows 7 OS. The product is underpowered by the 1.66GHZ Intel Atom processor and comes with a 160 GB hard drive because its developers do not understand how people are using their iPads.

The Windows 7 Tablet PC comes with an HDMI port, a forward facing camera and what the company’s video claims is a “10-inch” screen, despite their press release stating that it’s 11.25 x 6 inches (12.75″ diagonal).

“We wanted to launch a tablet that did everything, not just a media player or eReader or net book but all those things and much more,” stated IN Media C.E.O. Nick Karnik in the sloppily-written, somewhat incomprehensible, English-as-a-third-langage press release. “The touch screen the Windows 7 Tablet PC had all the full functionality of a PC in an elegant and efficient tablet format and because of the operating system users are not limited to what type of video formats they can view as all are supported including the most popular, Flash.”

IN Media’s high quality, professionally-voiced video:

MacDailyNews Take: The understatement of the voiceover talent, especially on the phrase “Windows business productivity,” is subtle yet ineffective.

IN Media’s Windows 7 Tablet PC is scheduled for shipment in first quarter 2011 and will roll out in Asia and the U.S. at a suggested retail price of US$399. If you can’t wait, please seek immediate help.

MacDailyNews Take: Further proof that iMovie in the wrong hands can be more effective than ipecac.

  1. Who invested their money to build this product? You’d think the investors at least should be smarter than this. If I’ve ever seen a doomed product, this is it.

    The investors will kick themselves they didn’t just buy AAPL stock with their money.

  2. Yes … just what I want when I go to read a novel. Vertically scrolling pages! Faster, I’m sure, for skimming to the end of the book, but I think Apple’s “page flipping” works better for reading longer books.

  3. I could be wrong, but I believe that entire video was made with iMovie based on the text effects and the comicbook theme. Can anyone confirm that?
    Are we sure this is even a real product video, because that almost looks like a spoof. Absolutely astounding if they actually expect this to succeed. Who wants to manually move the keyboard everytime they type something?
    DOA

    MDN Word: second, as in almost good enough to be second-rate…
    …almost.

  4. All these jokers will only be a boon for Apple. Who is going to want to wade through all these different alternatives, when the only question that will matter is, “Do I want an iPad or do I hate Apple so much that I will take the time to wade through all the shite to make a decision to buy one of the other overpriced (for what you get), under-sized, battery draining, under-performing, unstable, unsecure paper weights?”
