Evolve III's Maestro tablet boots three platforms

Evolve III at CES quietly showed off an unusual tablet that promised to be one of the few near-universal tablets. An updated version of the Maestro normally boots Windows 7 but also runs Android and a customized version of MeeGo. While only the MeeGo side has been seen in earnest in a demo at the Intel booth, it has a much more visual front end with music and photo browsers much like Apple's Cover Flow.

The internals have been upgraded over the earlier, Windows 7-only slate with the use of Intel's Oak Trail (Atom Z600) platform. Its 10-inch frame also fits a larger than usual 2GB of RAM and a 32GB solid-state drive to keep booting quick, although the small size limits the amount of space for all three operating systems. A 3G modem is standard.

The Australia-based company is due to ship the Maestro sometime in the spring, but its pricing and its availability outside of the US are both unknown. [via Geek.com]
