The 11.6-inch Gateway EC18T convertible netbook has passed through the FCC. We’ve already seen a whole gallery of photos of the EC18T but this news is likely to mean a US release is just around the corner. The model just looks like a rebranded Acer Aspire 1420P or Packard Bell Butterfly Touch, not surprising since both Gateway and Packard Bell are subsidiaries of Acer.
The Gateway EC18T convertible tablet will be powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz SU2300 processor, 4GB RAM (8GB supported) and a 250GB/320GB or 500GB hard drive. It will have HDMI, three USB ports and a battery that will last for 8 hours.
