BOCA RATON, Fla., and DALLAS -- AT&T* and OpenPeak Inc, a leading provider of multimedia touch-screen devices and device management platforms, today announced a powerful, multipurpose computing tablet device ideal for the home and on the go equipped with AT&T mobile broadband wireless service. The thin, elegant device, to be based on OpenPeak's ultra-sleek OpenTablet™ touch-screen design, will combine communications, entertainment and home management capabilities, and will be available nationwide via multiple retail distribution channels expected later this year. The OpenTablet is based on Intel's next generation handheld platform, codenamed "Moorestown," which delivers outstanding performance at low power.

Anticipated to be a breakthrough in versatility and value, the tablet will feature AT&T wireless connectivity via the nation's fastest 3G network, as well as 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Consumers will be able to use the device for social networking, downloading books, navigation, email and instant messaging, along with music, video and photo sharing. By adding home security systems and energy consumption monitoring applications, homeowners will be able to enjoy quick and easy access to a total home dashboard.

OpenTablet includes both OpenPeak Device Management Services and access to the OpenPeak App Shop. Device management allows providers to remotely provision, monitor and update the tablet over a broadband network to ensure the smoothest, most up-to-date user experience. The OpenPeak App Shop brings consumers and third-party developers together to enable a wide range of multimedia and home management applications.

"OpenTablet is an exciting multipurpose device with all the benefits and flexibility of a wirelessly connected personal computing and entertainment device," said Glenn Lurie, president, emerging devices, resale and partnerships, AT&T. "When you combine the capabilities of OpenTablet with AT&T's 3G mobile broadband service and AT&T Wi-Fi service, we're able to provide consumers wireless access to content they most desire, right at their fingertips."
