LG did not specify whether the new tablet will compete with the 10.1-inch Windows 7-based tablet it showed off at Computex 2010, or if is replacing that model, the UX10.

With the flurry of tablet announcements this year following on the heels of the iPad launch, 2010 is quickly becoming the year of the tablet, with observers predicting the device will gain in market share. Tablet PCs will outsell netbooks in 2012, according to Forrester Research.

The 451 Group is also predicting a move toward more powerful, smaller laptops that fit into the netbook category, said Chris Hazelton, research director, mobile and wireless, “but a bigger threat will be from the tablet, with people saying ‘If I’m going to mostly do web browsing, why have a keyboard?’ and they increasingly will want a display device dedicated to viewing content.”

In announcing the plans, LG said its tablet will be “thinner and lighter than competing devices.” But while Android is still behind the curve and is playing catch-up to Apple, said Hazelton, there is still room to compete. “You’ll see these device vendors leverage the openness of Android in that they can put specific apps on [tablets] that may be banned or prohibited by Apple.” In addition, competing tablets will have hardware features like USB ports, removable batteries and expandable memory, he said-all of which the iPad doesn’t(lg laptop battery).

“Hopefully, these [Android] devices can run 10 or more hours like the iPad can,” he said, and having a backup battery is handy, especially for business travel, if there is a problem. By contrast, Apple requires a user to send back the entire device if they encounter a battery issue. “If you open the device yourself you void the warranty,” Hazelton noted.

Among the desirable features tablet makers should be considering are a front-facing camera for video chat, he said, along with tight integration with Google Docs for business and Google Voice, which is already very well integrated with Android. “Google Voice … is almost unusable on the iPad and iPhone because it’s a web app and not a native app that was approved by Apple,” said Hazelton. “Those can be tightly integrated in a tablet PC.”

HTC could be the next to announce tablet plans, Hazelton said, since they came out with a small netbook running Windows XP a couple of years ago, but are likely to launch one running Android. Research in Motion and HP Palm may also follow. “Palm had a netbook that ran Linux a couple of years ago that never made it to market, but I think there’s still interest there,” said Hazelton, “particularly when you have a company like HP with lot of funding behind it now, so they can move into the tablet market unlike before because they lacked the resources.” lg laptop battery

If you are even the least bit interested in technology you know that having lots of choice is good. In a new market choice leads to competition among makers, which leads into new advancements in that given market.

Choice affects any given tech market as a whole but little choices or options as they are often called have their own effects that are important in their own right. For example the choice or option to have a varying group of operating systems being compatible with your computing device is a meaningful feature for a growing Acer aspire 5920 battery number of buyers.

Evolve Three of Australia is gearing up to launch a new tablet computer that offers buyers the option of running the device on either Android, Windows (Windows 7 comes pre-installed) operating systems. The Evolve Three Maestro C is the name of the tablet.

For the Maestro C the folks at Evolve Three have gone with the new versatile Intel Atom Z670 1.5GHz processor. The Z670 is from the new Atom Z6xx series of Intel Atom Oak Trail range of embedded systems processors. Intel has already outlined the features for the Z670 and one feature the CPU offers is the ability to run a multitude of operating systems (Android, Chrome OS, Windows and Maemo).

Other than the Intel Atom Z670 processor the Maestro C also offers a unique design. You see the tablet has an optional wireless Bluetooth keyboard (specific to the tablet) and the left side of the tablet Compaq nc6400 battery can be adjusted for use as a stand. See the image below.

Now that is a different look isn’t’ it?

The wireless keyboard itself is quite thin and portable, but it still offers full QWERTY key support and a touchpad (godsend for those looking to use Windows 7 heavily). And the really cool part about the keyboard using magnets can double as the screen cover. FYI the keyboard/cover when situated on the tablet puts it in hibernation/sleep mode. You will see what I mean in the demo video just below.

Some other major features being included with the Maestro C that you need to know about follow. The tablet has a 10.1-inch WSVGA (1024×600) capacitive touch widescreen (16:9) LCD, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, 32GB 1.8″ SSD (Optional 64GB), Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, optional 3G (GPS and A-GPS include.), 1.3MP webcam, 2x USB 2.0, 1x HDMI, Micro SD Slot (support up to 32GB) and 10+ Hours Running Time (Windows 7) or 16+ Hours Running Time (Android) from the 6 Cell Li-polymer Dell latitude e6400 battery .

According to Evolve Three the 10.1-inch Maestro C will come to the US in June with a starting price of $729. The tablet for Australian residents will start at $825 AUD. That’s a lot of money to ask, I know, but is the potential experience available with the device actually worth the price tag?
