Mecer has entered the tablet PC market in earnest with the launch of their stylish Xpress Business tablet. For the enthusiastic consumer considering a first-time tablet PC purchase, 2011 is providing a flood of exciting new options.
The 990-gram Xpress Business tablet offers a compelling set of features including an 11.6 inch LCD screen, built in camera, wi-fi and optional 3G. The Xpress runs on Windows7 and offers full support for Microsoft Office and a “Hotkey” application which not only supports personal media (such as music, movies and photos), but has embedded Social Media support as well.
The Xpress tablets large screen is optimised for a resolution of 1366 x 768 and the built-in “discrete” video accelerator can display HD videos in true 1080p. You would not be limited to watching videos on the tablet itself, because the mini-HDMI slot allows you to connect a larger monitor to the tablet.
This high resolution screen makes the Xpress a comfortable full-screen e-reader and, together with the gyroscope, allows for motion gaming.
The camera is limited and is being touted as a webcam, it only offers 1.3 mega-pixel fixed focus with resolution of 640×480 pixels.
The Xpress is available for purchase in South Africa at a recommended retail price of about R6000.00
