That puts it just above cheaper end netbooks and directly challenges the iPad on price: coming in almost exactly the same bracket. The cheapest iPad will sell for $499 in the US, (£330 at current exchange rates) but given that tech is usually a bit cheaper in the States, we can envisage a £350 price tag minimum for the Apple gadget.
And the specs? Sounds like the Windows 7 device will have an Atom processor, USB ports, memory card reader and – unlike the iPad – a back-mounted webcam and Flash support.
It’s expected in shops before September.[via engadget]
