I'm not at liberty to disclose the manufacturer yet, but I know you'll be surprised, as I was. The evaluation unit is supposed to arrive in the next day or two. I was disappointed, however, to learn that evaluation units are only offered for a few days at most. I'll do my best to do a quick review and, if I can get permission, post a photo or two before I have to ship back the unit. I can't wait! It sounds really neat.
I'll know in the next few days. The girls and I are going to post a 24-hour watch for the FedEx truck.
Meanwhile, I'm going to check out Marc's blog, Tablet PC Buzz, GottaBeMobile, and of course, JK on The Run to see if any of these guys have an inside scoop. They probably do. I wouldn't be surprised if any of these guys had already evaluated the unit that's being sent to me.
PS. I wonder if Marc Orchant had anything to do with this? Just last week, when I saw him, I told Marc that my dream Tablet PC (unlike Tracy Hooten's perfect Tablet PC) would have a very large high-resolution screen, suitable for ultimate mind-mapping. I even joked that I'd be happy with a 2.5" thick Tablet the size of a Tecra M4 with a fold-out screen twice the size of an M4. I hope this manufacturer gets it right.
I guess I'll find out, soon enough.
