Looks like Windows 7-based slates are following in the footsteps of netbooks, with internal components cloned from each other, such as the Asus Eee Pad and MSI Wind-Pad.

The LG UX10 sports a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor, 1GB RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium operating system. To round out the feature set, this slate also comes with a 1.3-megapixel webcam, SD memory card reader and mini-HDMI port.

What worries us is the 7200mAh battery. Though this will probably give the device great battery life, it may also increase the weight to non-slate-like levels. Still, it's best to withhold judgement till we see one in the flesh.

As long as it has TapType it might be usable (http://taptype.me). Otherwise it will be a typical unusable windows tablet.

So what does the writer want: long battery life or light weight?
I've been working on the design of my own tablet, one to be used for technical professionals. It will have a 14 inch screen and an optical drive, so it will weigh more than a postage stamp. But, it will be built to do a job, and fitted to have long battery life and some way to comfortably carry and use it.

Agreed, iAm steering clear of the iPad for it's limited feature set and closed content ecosystem, I HATE crApple's almost third line forcing. I eagerly await windows 7 and android based tablets. I eagerly await an open tablet platform. It's funny, Apple had me hard, on switching from a decade of windows to a macbook pro, i'm not turning back in a hurry, but they will not trap me into their closed ecosystem. Show me the open world!
