    Will move this post if there is more interest, but here are the specs: 121ware.com > »•iî•ñ > LifeTouch NOTE

    Thanks to naobsd: FUKAUMI Naoki (naobsd) on Twitter

    The key takeaway from the spec sheet is the standard GPS on all units, making this ideal for mobile use.

    Since many tablets require a carrying case, and that keyboard cases are high on the list of desirables, this NEC netbook with the touchscreen is a very nice package to consider.
