    Software looks incredibly poor... Most of the stuff doesn't work lol

    Also when you flip between screens it seems laggy?

    Even if they'll finish it on time I don't think there is a point in getting one.

    It does seem very slow. Even more so than my nexus one! I think the software definitely needs alot of work

    For that kind of money, it should turn into two notebooks.
    That made me lol!


    It is a prototype, i can only assume a very new software build. Hardware seems fairly impressive though!


    What I don't understand is why bother with a core 2 setup? Why would a tablet like that need such processing power? Fair enough it can be snapped into a laptop frame, but surely a mid spec'd tablet PC would then leave enough of the budget set aside from the £1000 asking price to go towards a decent standalone PC. A tablet, a laptop and no doubt change from £1000...win?
