Want to get a Windows-based tablet but you’re not sure if you want it to run Windows 7 or Windows 8? You’re in luck. The folks over at Evigroup have recently announced their new Intel-based tablet – the SmartPaddle Pro. What separates this tablet from other Windows tablets out there is its ability to dual-boot into Windows 7 or Windows 8. Granted, Windows 8 is not out, but the tablet will be shipping with the developer preview version of the operating system when it goes on sale. After Windows 8 is finally released, owners of the SmartPaddle Pro will be able to update their tablets to the full version of the operating system for free.
Specs of the tablet include: a 11.6″ touchscreen display, an Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 32 or 64GB SSD. The tablet will be priced at 759 Euro ($951). No word on a release date or if it’ll be making its way over to the US, but it certainly is an interesting idea that may or may not catch on. What do you think?
