My cargo pants, that is. Those big side pockets might be just the right size for this 7” multi-touch tablet from OpenPeak. The OpenTablet 7 (via SlashGear) is one of the better designed iPad competitors so far. It has a slick, simple design that manages to be minimalist and badass at the same time. Like the iPad and Notion Ink's Adam, I can easily see myself using this tablet comfortably.

The 7” screen size is the only real issue I have with the OpenTablet 7. It uses LED backlighting, supports b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and cellular connectivity. That apparently gives the OpenTablet 7 mobile broadband (WiMax) access, but not 3G. That's going to limit this thing's outdoor usefulness pretty harshly by geography.

The OpenTablet 7 also packs a mic and speakers, HDMI out, dual cameras for HD recording and still images, a microSD slot, a USB port, and a Moorestown Atom CPU. It is .59” thick, 9” by 5” in size, and only 1.15 lbs. This device has some shortcomings, but on the whole I think it represents a pretty solid answer to the iPad. We'll know more when OpenPeak announces pricing and availability.
