      An interesting concept adding a display, which may well go down well for business users on the move but for a consumer unit, the display is rather low quality at just 1024x600.

      The box still utilises Baytrail and may find itself swamped quickly by cherrytrail devices.

      I suspect that the addition of a display will potentially bump the price up quite a lot too.

      As far as cooling issues are concerned, when I contacted them about it, they denied that there was an issue as were unable to recreate the same situations as users on Freaktab.

        Looks like a great alternative to beloved, and dead, Chumby.

          Looks like it will stink as a tablet and stink even worse as a TV box. How do you get the screen to shut down while watching TV?. I see no advantage to this setup. And yes it looks like heat dissipation may be an issue unless there's another one of their noisy cheap fans in it. I need further convincing before I can accept something like this.

            he said the windows licence price for a device with such display is free, when the licence has a cost on a traditional TV box, so the consumer should benefit from that as the ols speced 7" screen should be very cheap...

                    far too many of these are coming w/ 32gb of drive space... far to low, imo
                    64gb and up is where it's at.. or leave space for a HDD..
