Taiwan-based manufacturer, Aware, has showcased the A-View netbook at the Global Sources fair in Hong Kong. The A-View looks very similar in concept to Always Innovating’s Touch Book, with its detachable keyboard transforming it from netbook to tablet.
However, unlike the 9-inch screen found on the Touch Book, the A-View has only a 7-inch display. It will come with 8GB of flash storage and 512MB RAM. The most interesting thing seems to be the price which is quoted at an equivalent of $150. The report from Digitimes claims that the system is already available in Europe, although on checking a few of the big e-tailers we couldn’t find it listed. If it retails for anywhere close to that in Europe I’d be surprised although we’ll be keeping our eyes open.
