Netbook Navigator launches Nav 10S Windows tablet for $580 and up

Netbook Navigator has been selling tablets with netbook-like specifications for the past few years (which, I guess, is where the name comes from). Now the company is offering off its first model with an Intel Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor.

Netbook Navigator Nav 10s

The Netbook Navigator NAV10S has a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU, up to 64GB of solid state storage, 2GB of DDR3 memory, and a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel multi-touch IPS display.

802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 come standard, and there’s a 3G option. The tablet has 2 USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot, and a proprietary docking port. It features a front-facing 1.3MP and rear-facing 3.2MP camera and a 2890mAh battery.

The Netbook Navigator Nav10S is available for $580 and up. The base price is for a model with a 16GB solid state disk and no operating system. Windows 7, addition storage, or a 3G radio will cost you more.

While the tablet is currently shipping with Windows 7, pretty much every promotional photo shows it running Windows 8 Release Preview.

    Quite a high price for a tablet that can’t use the Metro snapping features as it requires a minimum of a 1366×768 resolution.

      If you don’t mind a little distortion you could set a custom resolution to get it to work but there’s also the issue that the 32nm SoC Clover Trail is set to replace 45nm Oak Trail in time for W8 launch.

      So brings into question whether anyone should get this now or wait for a better product in just a few months.
