TechCrunch Tablet Revision B

I am sure by now everyone has seen or heard about the TechCrunch Internet Tablet – they’ve just updated the tablet and provided some great pictures and videos of the newest version.  You can view the pictures and videos:

As I was reading the article, and looking at the product there are a few things that they need to do to make it more attractive (physically) and to lower the cost.  I wouldn’t spend $299.00 on it since I could buy a cheap-o laptop for around that much or even a netbook or for $100.00 or so more a fully fuctioning netbook with more bells and whistles.

Things they should consider:

  • Make it slimmer – cut out more plastic from the case.
  • Drop the camera.  I’ve been using computers for around 20 years now and never really used the camera – perhaps I’m the wrong demographic, but if I’m surfing the web I don’t need a camera.
  • Why is there a port for a monitor?  Get rid of it.

I don’t know if this will drop the price to the $200.00 mark – but it will go some ways to lower the price to bring it in at the $200.00 mark that they initially wanted to sell the product at.
