Notebooks, Netbooks, desktops and Tablet galore.
Packard Bell may not have been as big of a player as Acer, ASUS, Apple or HP in the local notebooks market, but they here to make a big impression with the launch of their new lineup of notebooks, desktops, portable HDDs and monitors as well. Not to mention the Liberty Tab, Packard Bell’s Android Honeycomb based tablet that snuck out of nowhere.
While the entire notebook line and the desktop models are shipping to retailers as you read this, the Liberty Tab won’t be available until the end of June, or early July. Attending the launch event today, I must say that my personal favorites amongst the entire crop were the Liberty Tab (obviously), the extremely sleek and stylish EasyNote X series laptop (pictured below), and finally the iMedia mini-desktop.
You can check out the full press release below with some pictures to give you an idea of how the products look. Look forward to reviews of these products on Tbreak very soon.
