When ViewSonic showed off its ViewPad 100 over at IFA in September, the idea of a dual booting Android and Windows machine struck us at Pocket-lint as a winner.

And, Australian manufacturer Tegatech has just revealed 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 4 to 5 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".

We'll keep you updated with regards to any UK release details.
