Tegatech announces global launch of Tega v2, alerts us to its existence

Ready for another Atom-powered, Windows 7 tablet? Of course you are! Australia-based Tegatech has just announced the October 12 global launch of its 10.1-inch Tega v2. So, what is it exactly? With a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16/32/64GB SSD options, it sounds like your run-of-the-mill Win 7 tablet, though it does have a capacitive touchscreen and accelerometer -- facts that make it superior to the Nav 9 we just reviewed. It'll also ship with Windows 7 Home Premium, but interestingly there are Android 1.6 drivers on the company's site as well as a dual-boot manual. That, along with a dedicated Ctrl+Alt+Del button, certainly makes it a bit different than the others. No word on international pricing just yet, but those details ought to be flowing from the Land Down Under soon.
