The tablet market is more or less dominated by just two operating systems – Android of Google and iOS from Apple’s stable, but it seems as though Microsoft still has an extremely small voice in this niche (a squeak, actually), with their Windows 7 platform, although Windows 8 might just change the landscape altogether. It will take a whole lot of convincing from Microsoft to developers to support a Windows-powered tablet. Still, we shall take a closer look at what Microsoft has in store with Netbook Navigator’s Windows 7 (choose from Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate versions) powered tablet.
Running on an Intel Atom N570 1.66GHz dual-core processor with a base price of $499.99 (sans operating system), you will also find it equipped with a 10.1″ display at 1366 x 768 resolution, 2GB RAM, a 16GB solid state disk, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, two USB ports, a microSD memory card slot, a SIM card slot, a 3-cell battery and stereo speakers, with the possibility of throwing more dough in this direction to up the ante to 128GB of storage space and 3G connectivity.
