|If the Beam includes a true, Google, Android OS this will be one of the first ever non-phone products to be approved by Google. If not, the Android experience will be incomplete. (No marketplace or Google apps.) Build quality seems to be very good, it's lightweight and if the price is right, this really could be an interesting netbook / smartbook|

|Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, 10.1 inch, 715 grams (1.58 lbs)|
The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet is a standard Tegra 2 device with 3G options and up to 64GB Storage. It does feature an IPS display with Gorilla Glass. With its full size USB slot and its SD Card Slot it provides good connectivity for file exchange on the go.
|HP Slate 2, 8.9 inch, 690 grams (1.52 lbs)|
The HP Slate 2 is a Windows 7 Tablet powered by an Intel Atom Z670 clocked at 1.5 GHz. It has up to 64GB mSATA Storage and should last with its 2-cell (30WHr) battery up to 7.5 hours. With the possibility to add the Tablet to the optional dock one can have 2 more USB 2.0 ports plus the ability to extend the screen via HDMI to another device.
|Gigabyte S1081, 10.1 inch, 895 grams (1.97 lbs)|
|Dell Latitude ST, 10.1 inch, 816 grams (1.8 lbs)|
With a focus on business, the Latitude ST offers a hi-resolution screen and long battery life along with basic connectivity options with full-size ports. The casing is rubberised for grip. Capcative and Digitiser inpout layers are included. The optional docking station adds Gigabit Ethernet and comes with a keyboard. The 'Oaktrail' Z670 isn't a powerful CPU so multi-tasking will be limited. If the SSD is fast, it will help improve Windows 7 performance, otherwise it could feel quite sluggish.
|Motion Computing CL900, 10.1 inch, 950 grams (2.09 lbs)|
The ruggedised CL900 comes in with capacative and digitiser input layers along battery life for a great price. Motion Computing have also put together a wide range of accessories in including a unique docking station making this worth a look at.
|MSI Windpad 110W (232G), 10.1 inch, 850 grams (1.87 lbs)|
The 110W has the 1280x800 screen and integrated mouse pointer, 32GB SSD, HD decoder (via the 6250M graphics,) 2GB of RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium - A well balanced feature set for a mobile PC. With a 2-cell battery we're probably looking at 30-40Wh of power (unconfirmed) which is a 3-5hr usage time. If the Windpad includes some nice accessories (we are assuming the docking port is still included) it could make quite a well balanced product. And good value too.
|Gigabyte S1080, 10.1 inch, 895 grams (1.97 lbs)|
|Viewsonic Viewpad 10pro, 10.1 inch, 800 grams (1.76 lbs)|
|Hanvon Touchpad B10, 10.1 inch, 960 grams (2.12 lbs)|
|Acer Iconia Tab W500, 10.1 inch, 970 grams (2.14 lbs)|
In total, the tablet and dock solution weighs over 1.5kg which, for a solution with a 36Whr battery (and 3-4hrs usage) isn't much but as a hot-desking / round-the-house solution, the Acer Iconia Tab could perform well.
