It's been awhile since Intel refreshed the tablet version Classmate PC, and it's decided to launch the next generation kiddie netbook here at its CeBIT press conference. We just got a look at the new 10.1-inch light blue netvertible from afar and it looks slimmer than the previous version, but according to the press release below the updates really come in the form of ruggedness. It's got that always-cute grippy handle, a water resistant, anti-microbial keyboard, hard drive protection and a rubberized bottom. Still in tact is the rotatable webcam, screen accelerometer, and onboard microphone for recording notes. Unsurprisingly, Intel has updated the internals with its latest Pine Trail Atom processors. While it comes with a stylus, we're unsure if the touchscreen will support multitouch, but you can be sure we'll be finding out when we get some hands-on time. Oh, and happy birthday from Intel everyone!
