Shuttle Mini PC D10 will arrived soon

Quite a surprising premiere is waiting just round the bend. It is Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH that presents its latest gadget. Shuttle Mini PC D10 will be unveiled at this weekend but only for Japanese market. Unfortunately there is no clear word about when and where else D10 will be available to buy. But there might be a clue to get in Shuttle’s august worldwide press release about Shuttle Mini PC solutions. The fact that it was, ones again, worldwide, leaves us the message. So, D10 combines some interesting solutions for home and office use for temperate 330 Euros (price in Japan) with not much drawbacks to worry about.

First of all let’s mark that yes, D10 looks like it came here from late 80’s. Why its design is so plain remains an opened question. Probably Shuttle doesn’t emphasize modern design streams but its utility which is really on a high level. No mouse or keyboard are required for the device – embedded screen is a Barebone D10 versatile platform touch screen. It has 7 inches and 800 x 480 resolution. Mini PC reads most high-res media formats (blue-ray also) has a television tuner, remote control and a special output for an additional display. USB hosts, of course, up to four of them.

D10 is planed to be a surveillance helper. It can operate up to 16 CC-TV cameras via wireless Z-Wave home network technology or directly from the touch screen. Plus you can program it to control more household activities like video recording, alarm, lighting, etc, and probably save some money on electricity. All features from above will be shown at the gadget’s presentation.

The "insides" of the Shuttle D10 Mini PC are going to be serious. 2GB Ram, latest video cards and three processors: Intel Core Duo E4000 and E2000 series or Celeron 400.
