Tablets are all well and good, but sometimes you want a real keyboard and the increased utility of a netbook. And netbooks are fantastic, but sometimes you'd like to be able to just navigate on the fly with a touch of your fingers. If only there were some sort of portable gadget that could bridge the gap between netbook and tablet PC. Oh wait, what's this? According to Pocketables, there is! Japanese manufacturer Kohjinsha has just announced the release of their PA series of netbook/tablets. These nifty little gadgets feature a 4.8" WSVGA touchscreen, 1.33 GHz Atom CPU, 512 MB of RAM, and a 32 GB SSD. The battery life for this sweet tabletbook is listed at an impressive 7.5 hours, and it features an SD slot and 1.3 MP webcam. Altogether, the Kohjinsha PA looks like one of the more impressive gadgets we've seen.

And, sadly, it has an impressive price to boot. Over in Japan this wonderbook will set you back $758. Geek Stuff 4 U is taking pre-orders for $921, and Conics will charge $867 for this hybrid. The fact that this is still tempting at $900 is a testament to how cool a gadget it is.
