Ocosmos Intros Tiny Windows 7 Computer for Gaming and Work

In the ever-expanding world of unconventional computers, Ocosmos has just rolled out new five- and seven-inch Windows 7-based tablets geared to folks who want to combine serious gaming for fun with their day jobs.

The Tiny Computer (TC) OCS1 is targeted at "heavy-duty gamers," and the larger OCS9 tablet at "lighter gamers," Ocosmos staffers said during the ShowStoppers press event at CES.

Despite their small sizes, both gadgets are full-featured PCs, amenable to running a built-in office suite and other work apps along with games. For gaming control, though, they also feature Ocosmos' Omos interface.

On the five-inch OCS1, the gaming D Pads are built into the software interface. Built on an Intel Oak Trail 1.5 GHz processor, the TC comes with a capacitive touch panel with 1024-by-600 resolution; a slide-out keyboard, an SSD drive, 32/64 GB of internal storage and another 64 GB of external Micro SD storage; DTS stereo sound; GPS; a gyroscope/accelerometer; a 3 megapixel rear-facing and 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera; and WiFi b/g/n, WiMax, and Bluetooth 3.0 wireless.

The OCS1 supports Windows 7 games including Halo, StarCraft, and Sudden Attack, I was told.

The seven-inch OCS9 offers similar specs, except that the Omos controller is housed in a detachable hardware unit which doubles as a conventional PC keyboard and mouse. The detachable controller supports sliding and tilting functions.
