You know that Microsoft has taken their upcoming operating system known as Windows 8 seriously, and intend to continue the good work where Windows 7 left off. Well, for those who are looking at an alternative tablet device, the NEC VersaPro VZ might be just the big ticket item that you have been looking for, where it will run on the Windows 7 operating system. It will feature a 12.1” capacitive touchscreen display at 1,024 × 768 resolution, and is capable of supporting both touch and pen input. Of course, if you are going to have pizza for dinner most of the days and spend your time in front of the VersaPro VZ, then it makes perfect sense to stick to the stylus as the input method of choice. You will not find too much bite underneath the hood though, as we are looking at a 1.2GHz Celeron 857 CPU, 2GB RAM, a 64GB solid state disk, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an optional Docomo Xi LTE module – tipping the scales at 952 grams, making it shy of just 1kg. It seems to be a Japan-only device though.
