The possible launches include an Android and a Windows 7 based tablet device. The company is also planning to launch a dual screen tablet however it’s unveiling is expected to be delayed. The Deal screen tablet was recently on display in CES is being delayed because the screen is draining a lot of battery power quickly.

Other companies like Asus, Dell and HP have already launched or are getting to launch tablet devices to compete with the iPad from Apple which went on sale recently in the US.
It is expected that the tablet will come in an 8.9 inch and a 10 inch models. Some tablets will use NVIDIA Tegra 2 and will use the Android OS while others will make use of Windows 7 models will be based on Intel Atom CPUs.
