Kohjinsha SK3 convertible tablet gets video unboxing

July 3, 2009 at 5:38 pm

Kohjinsha SK3Kohjinsha recently announced the SK3 7-inch convertible tablet that is the spiritual successor to the SC3 released last year. The SK3 sports a 7-inch (1024 x 600) LED backlit display and is powered by a 1.33GHz Z520 Atom CPU. It’s quite a fully featured device that includes Wi-Fi (draft-n), Bluetooth, Expresscard, two USB ports as well as two cameras.

Chippy from UMPC Portal has managed to get hold of the SK3 and has already shot an unboxing video. Build quality is impressive along with the size (30mm thick) and weight (720g). As you can probably tell from the pictures, it comes with a personal organiser type case with the SK3 nestled inside. Kohjinsha certainly wanted to highlight the size of the SK3!

The keyboard is the same as the SC3 and the speed of the device is good, however battery life may be its weak point. The swivel mechanism also appears to be solid. A full hands-on report is expected early next week, until then feat your eyes on the unboxing vid after the break. Read more
