Techcrunch: Rocketfish-Seriously, a Best Buy Tablet

http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/08/06...st-buy-tablet/

Quote:
Can’t say we saw this coming, but Best Buy’s CTO and Geek Squad founder, Robert Stephens, just tweeted two pics of the surprisingly polished-looking tablet. We’re currently digging for more details but from what we can tell from the pics, the tablet looks remarkable similar to early HP Slate pics. Every seem and port seems to be the same right down to the (docking?) port on the bottom. Even if it’s not built on the same platform, the screen sizes look about the same, placing the Rocketfish tablet in the 9-inch range.

It's only a prototype with no working internal parts. Who knows what the end result will be.

I was looking for a sound card for my HTPC last month, needed to output optical dolby digital to my home theater 5.1 reciever, and nothing else was working. I found a Rocketfish 5.1 sound card on ebay for $9, the nearest other option was a $100 Sound Blaster card, and the prices went up steeply from there. Put the darn thing my Win 7 HTPC, restarted, and it loaded all the (64bit!!!) drivers, has worked perfectly since. Nice. No problems, no troubleshooting, worked like it was supposed to.

They just might be able to pull this off...
