Come September and we might have a new 7 inch tablet to try; and for a change, its going to run Windows and not Android as the operating system. The 7 inch tablet from Netbook Navigator has been in the news since March and is all set to break free next month.
The Nav7 comes with specs that one might expect out of a tablet running the Windows OS. It has 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, while at the heart of it all lies a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z530 processor. (There are two other versions as well with 16 and 32 GB of internal memory). Also, a unique aspect with the Nav7 is that it features both a touchpad as well as mouse buttons. The pointing devices though are set at the rear of the tablet. This way one can interact with the tablet while gripping it with both hands.
The screen size is 7 inches with a resolution of 1024 X 600 pixels. It weighs about 1.2 pounds and sports a 19 Whr battery. With an Intel Atom processor running its internals, the battery life thought can’t be expected to do more than 3 – 4 hours, though Netbook Navigator is claiming it’s going to max out at 5 hours under standard usage.
For pricing the Nav7 comes at $599 for the least speced version—16 GB solid state disk with no OS pre-installed. Price of the tablet with 3G or additional storage capacity is higher.
