When I first unwrapped the iiView M1Touch in the office, everyone here had a nagging feeling they'd seen the design somewhere. Can you guess what it looks like?

Before Apple jumps on the bones of the Hong Kong-based manufacturer, you can grab this slate device, which looks like an oversized iPod Touch or iPad, for between $500 and $700. The M1Touch, which comes in four models, is a Windows 7-running, Atom-carrying member of the slate family.

  • Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor
  • 10.2-inch (1,024x600) multitouch display
  • 1GB or 2GB RAM, depending on model
  • 160GB or 250GB HDD, depending on model
  • Webcam, USB, and 4-in-1 card reader
  • Built-in accelerometer
  • About 11.4 inches wide by 6 inches tall by less than an inch deep
  • 2.6 pounds
  • Up to three hours of battery life
  • Windows 7 Home Premium

The iiView M1Touch is expected out later this month.
