We have seen the attempt on notebooks and netbooks till now – but be prepared to get the best of both Windows and Linux world on Tablets as well! The Novatech nTablet sure isn’t any head-turner and is just one of those entry-level tablets. However, one feature that surely is going to help it gain some popularity is its ability to dual boot Windows 7 as well as the Google Android OS.

Talking of the hardware, the nTablet has under its hood a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 processor that powers the device along with 1GB of DDR3 memory and a 32GB SSD for storage. You also get a 10.1-inch, 1024 x 600 pixels capacitive multitouch display along with an integrated 1.3MP webcam. 2 USB ports and 802.11b/g/n WiFi are standard on the device and so is a 4200mAh battery that provides power back-up. The only major letdown we see here is probably the use of an outdated processor; a dual-core Atom chip was surely preferred. Nonetheless, the N455 supports DDR3 memory module so that your memory executions become faster than the usual DDR2 ones.

Weighing a mere 1.6 pounds (725gm), the nTablet will sell from £349.99 onwards (equivalent to about $562) in the UK, which roughly calculates to $552 in the US. Although at £349.99, which is the price for the base model, you do not get a pre-installed operating system, all you get is a clean device. In case you want your nTablet to come factory-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium, you have to shell out another £89 (about $142.5); Windows 7 Professional pushes the total price to £469 (about $752).
