"More than a year after it first offered the world a peek at its upcoming tablet PC, Taiwan's First International Computer will soon begin mass production of the device.

Based on Transmeta's Crusoe microprocessor , the AquaPad tablet PC will be available in two versions: one running Microsoft's Windows CE and one running the Midori Linux operating system, says Allen Chen, a sales account manager for FIC speaking at the World PC Expo exhibition, which is currently running just outside of Tokyo.

The AquaPad features a Crusoe 5400 processor running at 500 MHz.

"We will start mass production this month," Chen says. Samples of the device should be available towards the end of the month with a Japanese language version available one month later, he adds."
