Maestro dates, prices convertible Atom tablet
Maestro has just shown off a new Atom Z670-based tablet, the Maestro S, in Beijing. The device follows up on the Evolve III introduced at CES that could boot into either Windows 7, Android or MeeGo. The new device does the same but adds an integrated kickstand and a magnetic screen cover that doubles as a wireless keyboard.
Includes Maestro, Helium, Muse
"Independent sources" have confirmed information from an Adobe survey hinting at the features of Creative Suite 6, according to AppleInsider. Included are several new components, such as Maestro, which will allegedly let people "sync, store, share and review" projects across multiple computers and users. Users will be able to keep up to 100GB of material on Adobe servers, and send sketches to Maestro via the Ideas mobile app. Built-in format conversion should make it easier to share files.
