I knew I had seen a tablet shaped similarly before.
It was the Pepper Pad:

Previously at Mike Cane’s Blog:
Update: See some of the Pepper Pad in video after the break.
A mysterious tweet:
Led to this video:
Update: Since this post, the video was made Private. Very, very strange.
Is that the TabCo tablet?
What is that? Who are they?
Update: The Internet Always Win. See screensnaps from the video after the break.
They’ve been answering questions over at gdgt, where I don’t have an account, won’t register for one, and which doesn’t offer Twitter signin (FAIL!).
Some key points:
1) It will be available in the U.S. this month
2) It will have an SD Card slot(!)
3) They also said:
The OS is smart, social and transportable. It provides a new way to interact with your device. The predictive UI anticipates user needs to help perform tasks such as Web searches, buying products or getting directions.
Some of that sounds very science-fictiony.
It also builds up my expectations beyond Apple-like levels. However, I’ve already been surprised by the extraordinary work Nokia put into the N9. If this goes beyond that, I will be very pleased.
Right now, I just have one question I’d like TabCo to answer: Does it have built-in screensnap capability?
