Are Intel dusting off their Mobile Clinical Assistant concept and attempting to give it 10cc’s of today’s ultramobile gloss? That’s certainly what it looks like going by today’s IDF keynote; Dadi Perlmutter, executive vice president and general manager of the Intel Mobility Group, closed the show by throwing up this slide and promising details on Wednesday.
The edges have got a little more rounded and the buttons rearranged, but otherwise it looks very similar to the original concept back in 2006 (shown above). That in itself evolved into Motion Computing’s medically-targeted C5 Tablet PC slate (shown below).
Recycled concept with Atom under the hood? Budget slate alternative to the OLPC or Intel’s own promised Classmate update? Tomorrow will tell.
