Ocosmos announces gaming tablet

ocosmos I have to be honest and say that OCOSMOS Co. is not a name that I am familiar with but we just heard of the companies latest product; the OCS9 Tablet PC, designed to ‘revolutionise the professional and gaming PC markets’.

OCOSMOS describe the product as being the “World’s Only Tablet with Detachable Controller, Stylus Stand, Pouch and OMOS Key Brings High-End PC Power and Uniquely Intuitive Interface to Gamers and Office Workers”

You can find the full press release below, it certainly looks interesting enough with it’s 9″ multitouch capacitive display, front and rear cameras and running Windows 7. Just curious that the screen is described as widescreen but with a resolution of 1024×768 as the resolution is more like 4:3 than 16:9?


OCOSMOS Co., Ltd, a leading innovator and developer of consumer electronics and solutions, today unveiled the world’s most user-friendly personal computer and gaming device: the OCS9 Tablet PC, revolutionizing both professional and gaming PC markets.

The OCS9 is a multimedia PC tablet powered by Intel’s next generation Atom platform codenamed "Oak Trail", running Windows 7, and capable of running the most demanding online PC games, MMORPG, 3D, productivity and social networking applications. It’s a high-end tablet PC. Its uniquely usable OMOS Key interface enhances the ease and speed of tasks and games commonly performed on a laptop or desktop and its intuitive control mechanism is superior to multi-touch interfaces for playing games and browsing the Web.

The OCS9 is built for hardcore and casual gaming, interactive entertainment, social networking and productivity applications, with its OMOS interface, nine-inch (diagonal) multi-touch display, detachable QWERTY controller with virtual keyboard, connectivity over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB 2.0 HS, powerful stereo sound, and long battery life, making it the ideal Tablet PC. A stand allows users to tilt the tablet for operation at a convenient angle. The OCS9 also comes with a pouch that holds the detachable controller and the alternate battery.

"OCS9’s OMOS Key raises the bar for the most usable Tablet PC interface," said Eu-jin Oh, president of OCOSMOS. "Users will love the OCS9’s capabilities, ease of use and power."

The OCS9 Tablet PC delivers a new platform of Tiny Computer (TC) technology that benefits both business users and the gaming public, and its unique OMOS Key interface overcomes the limitations of multi-touch interfaces.
