    The good omens regarding the EP121: it's called business oriented and the blackboard video briefly shows drawing a fancy picture with a pen.

    It definitely has pen input...the type and whether it is active is unknown, although TPCR thinks active.. It is supposed to come with a docking station with keyboard that contains a HD, while the main unit has SSD. It is targeted for enterprise and will be ca. $1000. It also has a custom UI developed with Microsoft, and I read that it might ship in January (!! Engadget) although most reviews say March.

    The two others announced will be Intel Oak Trail/Sandy Bridge with Tegra 2 models .. most of the specs are unknown except smaller and lighter .. they are designed as consumer devices with $499 price points. One will be Android, the other some form of Windows 7 (but different than those currently in use; CE?).

    All blogged data..YMMV most certainly.

    I can say that if the Ep121 turns out not to be vaporware I'll be on board. It suits my needs perfectly with the pen being the only bogie.

    Can anyone link the engadget blog?

    I'm definably interested in the EP 121 as my desktop/laptop replacement where as the HP slate is my laptop/pda replacement.

    Those viewing angles look pretty pathetic!
