We had a little play with Panasonic’s VIERA tablet at CES in January, which means you'd be forgiven for thinking that fellow TV manufacturer Pioneer is getting in on the slate action with its own answer to the iPad. Think again: this - the Pioneer Dreambook ePad F10 - actually comes from Pioneer Computers, not the premium home cinema company of the same name.
Despite looking almost exactly the same as the iPad, the Dreambook does differ quite a bit. For a start, Pioneer has chosen to stock it with Windows 7 (although there are claims that it’ll dual boot with Android), and it’s a 10.1, 1024 x 600 resolution display. On top of that there’s a 1.3-Meg camera, an SD card slot and an 8 hour battery life.
The killer feature could be the option to spec it out with up to 2GB of RAM (backed up by a 1.5 GHz Intel Z670 Oak Trail processor) and up to 128GB of flash storage. There’s no word on price or release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted. Keen? Let us know on the T3 Twitter feed.
