Dual boot tablet computers

There can be multiple operating systems on a computer. A computer having more than one OS is known as a dual boot system. In a dual boot computer, the hardware usage is shared by two different operating systems. There are some advantages and disadvantages associated with the dual booting of computers.

Advantages associated with the dual-boot operating systems are as follows:

Multiple operating systems can be operated on a single computer with the help of an option provided in the boot menu of system. If one of the operating systems was corrupted, you can work with other operating system. In this way, the dual booting of the system offers a smoother work environment. If any software or application is not working with an operating system, you can check it with another one.

Following are the disadvantages associated with the dual booting of operating systems:

The main disadvantage of dual booting is the degraded performance of a computer as the hardware and memory usage is shared with two OS. Another bug in dual booting is the clash between different applications. The clash between applications uses system memory and thereby the performance of system may be affected.

Nowadays it is possible to have a tablet PC with dual-boot functionality. Earlier, only single OS was supported by tablet PCs. Tablet PCs prove to be very helpful to take your data on the go. Azpen is scheduled to launch their dual-boot tablet PCs in 2011. These will be capable of booting Android OS along with Windows 7. This model of tablet PC released by Azpen will be available in two different versions. The details regarding these different versions of Azpen tablet PCs are as follows:

First one is a 10.1 inch model and the aspect ratio is 16:9. Another one is available in a 9.7 inch size and the aspect ratio is 4:3. These tablet PCs come with touch screen functionality. They are equipped with Intel Atom N455 processor, 32GB storage space and 2GB of internal memory. With all these power packed features of Azpen tablet PCs, consumers can take their data and work anywhere with dual-boot operation. Dual- boot operating systems greatly help consumers to work frequently on different OS environments that enhance their working capabilities.

The CES 2011 and the CES 2010 saw the launch of many products. One of the major players and smartphone debutants was definitely the Android-based Google Nexus One. Google and their Android open source project teams have definitely done wonders. After the Google Nexus One, Google introduced the Nexus S.

Samsung of South Korea, one of the players taking the lead in Android-based smartphones and tablets, has definitely made a mark for themselves in this technology scenario. Google launched the Nexus One, which was manufactured by HTC. The Nexus One chapter was closed with Google introducing the Nexus S on the Gingerbread OS – Android 2.3. While Google introduced the Gingerbread OS on the Nexus S with a wide range of features added over the Froyo OS, Google is yet to release updates to the Nexus One users worldwide. Samsung Galaxy S did wonders, capturing a large part of the market of Android-based smartphones.

While Google has been slowly upgrading the Nexus One with the Gingerbread OS, Google is taking Samsung head-on by introducing the Nexus S in South Korea. One would have expected Google after their success in the US markets, to move to Canada, Europe and other developed areas, but Google is introducing the Nexus S in Italy and South Korea. Google will be launching the Nexus S through SK Telecom who, by the way are already the carriers for Samsung Galaxy S. It is heard that SKT is in the final stages of testing the Google Nexus S on their network.

The Nexus S sports a 4-inch super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16 GB on board memory, Wi-Fi connectivity, HSPA, 5 mega-pixel camera, a micro SB memory card slot as also a wide range of Android sensors. The Nexus S also comes with a front facing VGA camera for video chat, Bluetooth 2.1 plus EDR and A-GPS. The 1500 mAh lithium Ion battery and 3G are features to look out. The curved super AMOLED display is again one of the firsts worldwide, besides the graphics co-processor.

LG Developing Android Tablet

LG Electronics recently revealed news on the development of its first tablet pc, promising that it will be lighter and thinner than the current competing tablets available. The upcoming tablet pc will be based on Google’s Android OS platform. By perusing this field of production, LG has joined the competition along with largely established corporations like Apple, Dell and Samsung. In LG announcement, they expressed their interests in developing a tablet that will run on Google’s Android OS. According to the plans ahead, the tablet will be available by the end of the year. Unfortunately, there are still few details concerning the product to be released.

Why LG entered the Tablet PC market

With so many tablet devices being announced this year, such as the iPad, LG did not conclude on which devices their upcoming tablet will compete with. The iPad is an example of a product that has realized a massively successful release. It is predicted to be the next hot item of this year and might even gain market shares. Forrester Research predicts that by 2013, tablets will overrun notebooks. LG seems to be making appropriate investment plans to prepare for this future. Research director Chris Hazelton said, “a bigger threat will be from the tablet, with people saying ‘If I’m going to mostly do web browsing, why have a keyboard?’ and they increasingly will want a display device dedicated to viewing content.”

How will their product compete?

Hazelton suggested that LG’s Android-powered tablet pc might compete with Apple’s iPad with its “thinner and lighter” form in comparison to other tablets. Rumor has it that the upcoming device will have several features that are lacking in the iPad. Some of these features are removable batteries and expandable memory. “Hopefully, these [Android] devices can run 10 or more hours like the iPad can,” Hazelton said, “having spare batteries is much better than having the whole thing sent for a checkup which sadly the iPad requires if it encounters such issues.” Hazelton also noted that opening the casing of an iPad would void its warranty, causing an inconvenience to customers.

Features that may give LG a leading edge

LG has many other features that it could use to gain advantage in the competition. One of the most consumer demanded features is Video Chat. Many tablet pc in the market lack this feature. LG even has a bonus from incorporating the Android OS in their device: applications like Google Docs and Google Voice are integrated. Hazelton mentioned, “Google Voice…is almost unusable on the iPad and iPhone because it’s a web app and not a native app that was approved by Apple.” A tablet pc that supports this feature will definitely be preferred for those who are experienced with Google products and services. With all the plans for the future, LG has essentially promised more than just a “thinner and lighter” alternative to tablet pcs currently flooding the market. Their new product may be a considerable substitute for consumers that are unsatisfied with the iPad. However, LG has not mention if the new technology would do better in performance. It is expected to be a successful release with the Android OS running in it.
