TEGA V2: Dual-boot Windows 7/ Android Tablet
Australian manufacturer Tegatech has just reveled plans for a similar device that, like the ViewPad 100, will offer two operating systems – Windows 7 and Android 1.6.
Now, you might be a bit miffed with the ancient Android version, but Tegatech’s website states that it is working on 2.1 and 2.2 updates.
On board you’ve got an Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz processor, with 1GB of DDR3 RAM and Intel Generation 3.5 integrated GMA 3150 graphics.
Storage is the SSD variety and comes in 16, 32 or 64 variants.It’s got a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as standard and optional 3G, Wimax and Wibro.
Port-wise, you’re looking at an SD card reader, two USBs and a VGA. There’s also room for a SIM if you want to go down the 3G route.
The Tega v2 comes with either a 0.3 or 1.3-megapixel camera and the device measures 243 x 190 x 14mm and weighs in at 870g.
The most apparent drawback of the device is a maximum battery life of just four to five hours.
The Tega v2 will launch worldwide on 15 October, although as yet there is no UK release plans as Tegatech is “still looking for more partners in the UK”.
