    They have windows embedded and windows ce and can't have a separate tablet version. It seems like 13 year olds thought this up.
     
  3. You simply don't know what you're talking about. That's actually an excellent device. The inclusion of com ports and the fact that it's fanless opens a lot of doors.

Or like the article states, to power digital signs.

    If the device is three or four hundred dollars it'll be a hit all over the board. Many applications.

    The only thing I'd wonder is how much support it will have. What kind of drivers will they make for it? What kind of touch screens will work with it. Most POS systems run on Embedded so it will probably work well in that application.
