I came across a booth by hardware designer and manufacturer FlaStar Technologies at CES. Like Compal, they do research and design for tablet hardware for businesses requesting their services. There was nothing too special to get excited about, but some of the customizations made to Android on one of their tablets weren’t the worst I’ve seen. And the netbook they had on display – while uninspiring software wise – looked great hardware wise. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn they create products for the likes of Dell or HP, either. Take a look at the quick video above. Not too eventful, but worth a bit of time on a slower Friday. PS: They – in fact – did not have fact sheets available. Bummer. I also wasn’t even able to touch them. Quite surprised I was able to actually look at them.
