OpenPeak’s OpenTablet 7 Wonders Who Needs an iPad?

Coinciding with this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, OpenPeak has formally announced its OpenTablet 7, a 7-inch touch-screen device that’s designed to handle both user’s multimedia, Internet communications and social media, but also operate as a functional telephone. And the device measures just 9 inches by 5 inches, and is just 0.6 inches thick so it can cleverly disguise itself as a photoframe.

“The OpenTablet is the ultimate control panel, delivering the most commonly accessed multi-media services right to your fingertips anywhere,” said OpenPeak CEO Dan Gittleman, in a statement. “The all-in-one device allows you to sync schedules, check movie times, listen to music, watch videos, get weather updates, and even monitor energy usage and home security, all from a single, easy-to-use device.”

The OpenTablet 7 sports that 7-inch touchscreen display with LED backlighting and is powered by Intel’s Moorestown platform—yes, that’s an Atom inside. The OpenTablet 7 sports integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless networking, two cameras (one for stills and another for high-definition video), cellular connectivity options, and HDMI output for pushing media to a big screen. The tablet also sports USB 2.0 connectivity and microSD storage.

The OpenTablet 7 doesn’t exactly run Windows or an embedded Linux, though: instead, developers make apps using Adobe Flash CS4, and OpenPeak has rolled out what it’s describing as an end-to-end deployment solution so applications developers can sell apps to customers, update customer devices, and provide the latest content.

OpenPeak hasn’t announced any pricing for the OpenTablet, but expects the device will be adopted by “branded customers” and service operators, with consumers starting to see products in the second half of 2010.
