Once again, those clever devils at the Federal Communications Commission get their hands on a sweet piece of gadgetry before the rest of us. This time the device in question is the Malata PC-91008 (Wireless Goodness via Netbooked), a tablet netbook that's been making the rounds in China for the last few weeks. Over there, it sells for $439 USD. We can probably trust in it being a bit cheaper when it launches here.

The Malata isn't as sexy as some of the other tablet-book offerings out there. It only packs an Atom N270 processor and no multi-touch capabilities. The screen is 10", and the machine packs 2 GB of RAM, a 320 GB HD, .3 MP webcam, GMA 950 graphics, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 2 USB slots, a card reader, and a multi-touch touchpad. It weighs 1.35 kg.

We heard last week that 10"-12" netbooks are set to be the new norm in 2010. 10" touchscreen netbooks were expected to make up a large portion of the mid-level netbook market. The Malata showing up soon after that news is no coincidence. This is a touchscreen netbook with thoroughly mid-range specs, a low price, and the potential to be a hot seller if priced at $300-$400. Look for more devices like this to start leaking out over the next few weeks.
