There's little doubting it now; 2010 is going to be the year of the tablet. We've got a slew of new tablet PCs and touchscreen, convertible tablet notebooks heading our way next year. One of them, the Gateway EC18T, has just been approved by the FCC (via Netbooked). Now we know exactly what this svelte new tablet packs under the hood. The processor will be a respectable dual-core, 1.2 GHz Intel Celeron SU2300. The EC18T will sport 4 GB of RAM (with room for up to 8 GB), as well as 250 GB, 320 GB and 500 GB HDD options. The graphics will be powered by an Intel GMA 4500 MHD graphics chipset. This tablet will have a working battery life of around eight hours and packs HDMI and VGA out, as well as 3 USB ports and an audio jack.So far, the EC18T is shaping up to be a perfect student/business traveler laptop. It's thin, packs great battery life, and has enough power behind it to handle image editing and other intensive tasks. This machine will launch at some point in 2010, no information on MSRP or availability has been released.
