If you have been following the ExoPC Slate over the last several months, waiting for the day you could order the thing for yourself, that day has come. The ExoPC Slate is now up for pre-order for those who are registered for the site forums. The pre-order offering comes with good news and bad news that may temper your enthusiasm for the Slate.
The bad news is that the maker of the Slate has had trouble getting GPS to work on the device and therefore at this point it is unknown whether the 64GB version up for pre-sale will have GPS when it finally ships. The expectation is that GPS will not be supported at launch. The good news is that in light of the question about GPS, the company has cut the pre-order price a bit.
The original pre-order price was pegged at 799 CAD and the new pre-order price is 749 CAD. The company states that the 749 CAD price tag will remain even if it is able to get GPS working in time for the devices to ship. The tablet promises 4-hour battery life and other good news is that the 64GB SSD inside the Slate is one of the blazing fast SanDisk units.
