GottaBeMobile.com and other sites are reporting that Gateway is close to releasing a convertible (Tablet PC plus a physical keyboard) laptop, with a 12-inch display.
Andrew Kostin’s blog has more details, as well as a link to the user guide. It’s going to have both an active and passive digitizer.
The only other information we have is that it has a biometric/fingerprint reader, an ambient light sensor, two USB 2.0 ports, one IEEE1394 (Firewire) port, optical drive (DVD capabilities possibly), memory card reader, PC Card slot, and two memory slots.
No word on what CPU, etc., but details are expected soon.
Gateway refers to it in the guide as a “Convertible Notebook”
