Evolve III Maestro is a Triple Boot Tablet: Runs Android, MeeGo and Windows 7 (Video)

Once again CES 2011 material was missed and of course, it’s a tablet we’re talking about. The Evolve III Maestro was spotted at Intel’s booth and what’s really interesting about this device is that it runs Android, Windows 7 and MeeGo, making it a triple boot slate.

Inside there’s an 1.83GHz Atom N475 CPU, that will be replaced with a dual-core Oak Trail processor starting from Q2 2011. TabletPCBuzz claims that Windows 7 and Android get 8 and 16 hours of battery on the device, thanks to the Oak Trail chip. This unit is supposed to weigh less than two pounds and its screen is a 10.1 inch display, with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.

Other feats are 2GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 32GB SSD storage, 3G connectivity and support for WiFi 802.11 b/g/n. The price point is around $500, for the original version, while the Oak Trail one will cost an extra $100. Here’s a video detailing the device.

Straight from CES 2011 there’s some love to show the ENSPERT company, who have showcased (among others), the S200U Home Tablet. This can be considered a home hub device, that’s based on media convergence and home network usage. ENSPERT aims at the US and Japanese market with its products.

DLNA is also supported, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth and the S200U relies on the N-Screen platform, that links freely with other devices, like smartphones, slates and smart TV sets.

Enspert Prepares Full Metal Body Tablet PC E301, Shown at CES Last Week (Video)

You might have never heard about Enspert before, but they unveiled a pretty cool product at CES 2011. We’re talking about the next-gen Android slate E301, a full metal body tablet shown in Vegas last week. This Android 2.2 comes with a 7 inch display, with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and full-metal body.

The device also supports Google Android Market and it incorporates a 1GHz CPU, a 3MP camera, SD card slot, WiFi and Bluetooth support. Games, mobile Office and digital photo frame features are on the specs list as well, plus e-book support and Adobe Flash. Too bad that the product is WiFi only, as it would have been pretty tempting, specially for the right price.

There’s also a hands on video below of the Enspert E301, if you’re curios:

Acer 7 and 4.8 Inch Slates Spotted at CES, No Names and Specs Yet

Aside from the 10 inch Iconis A500 tablet announced at CES just days ago, Acer also allowed the press to have a glance at two brand new slates. One of them measures 4.8 inches in screen diagonal and can be seen below, while the second is pictured at the end of the article.

Sadly there’s no name for these new products and no trace of specs, for now. These are not concepts, since Acer really plans on releasing them, but there’s no launch date known. OS is also a mystery, as well as the CPU of choice, although we’re guessing that Android and Tegra 2 might be favorites.

Inside, you’ll find a Samsung S5PV210 processor (Hummingbird with a twist), underclocked to 800MHz, but still able to do 1080p. The rest of the specs are pretty minimalistic: SIM card slot, microSD, HDMI and stereo speakers. Froyo is the name of the OS on this piece of hardware.

Ocosmos Details and Unveils Oak Trail-Based Gaming UMPCs OCS1 and OCS9

Remember those cool gaming tablets we’ve shown you before CES 2011 started? They’re very real and they’ve been spotted at CES, being detailed by their maker. We’re talking about the Ocosmos OCS1 and OCS9, with the first unit being shown below and specced after the break.

Both units are UMPCs based on the Oak Trail platform and right now they’re destined to reach the Korean market. US And Europe will  have to wait a bit more, but hey, the PSP Phone is coming, right? Here’s what the OCS1 is all about:

  • OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
  • CPU: Intel Oak Trail CPU, 1.5GHz
  • Display: 5 inch capacitive touchscreen, 1024 x 600 pixels
  • Memory: 1GB RAM (upgradable to 2GB), up to 64GB SSD, microSD slot
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Camera: 3.2MP, 1.3MP front cam
  • Others: shoulder keys for gaming, gyroscope, accelerometer

Ocosmos says that the OCS1 will change the gaming and business segments and then there’s the 9 inch slate OCS9, that has just about the same specs as the unit above, aside from the screen diagonal, that’s bigger. OSC9 (pictured below) holds an extra battery and uses a capacitive keyboard available separately as an accessory that connects via Bluetooth.

Till Sony devices to deliver a PSP tablet, these gaming machines seem pretty appealing, specially with a decent price tag.

Sony Wants to be World’s Second Best Tablet Maker, After Apple

It’s a well known fact that Steve Jobs admires the way Sony are doing business and we guess that Sony also has some respect for Apple, at this point. This is also due to a recent statement of Sony computer division head Kunimasa Suzuki, who said that the company wants to catch up and be second to Apple by 2012, as far as tablet sales are concerned.

Suzuki also calls the iPad the “king of tablets” and he wants Sony’s product to be second, although we have no idea what that product will be. An year is the time frame for Sony to take the spot on the podium. It was kind of a disappointment to witness the debut of CES 2011 with Sony lacking a PSP Phone or tablet from its booth…

Maybe MWC 2011 will bring novelty, but that’s not for sure as far as Sony is concerned. Recently there have been claims that Sony might be readying a PSP tablet, especially with the few gaming slates present at CES 2011 showing that it can be done. So, will it happen?
