Gigabyte M912 tablet netbook listed
Starting at €459
Gigabyte's M912, the first Atom powered tablet, has been listed and we're pleasantly surprised by its pricing.
There are just four SKUs at the moment, two with 1GB of memory and two with 2GB of memory. The 1GB model without an OS costs €459 and you'll have to cough up €509 for the 2GB model. The other two machines ship with Vista Home Basic and cost €519 and €569 for the 1GB and 2GB version respectively.
Considering the M912 is the only netbook with a swivel touchscreen and the fact that it ships with a spacious 160GB hard drive, the prices sound pretty good to us. There's no official word on availability, but the German retailer listing the new gadget expects to have some in stock within the next month.
Let's just hope nobody starts conjuring up a new name for cheap tablets, as netbook and nettop are already a bit too much.
