Hard on the heels of the news last week of Acer's dual-booting netbooks, Augen has announced that one of its six forthcoming tablets will run both Android and Ubuntu.

Whereas Acer's dual-core netbooks will offer Android and Windows 7, Augen's Gentouch Espresso Doppio will be the first device to dual-boot the two Linux-based operating systems, the Florida company says. Users will be able to select either Android 2.2 or Ubuntu when turning on the tablet, which is designed to offer the full functionality of a laptop with email, social networking, business applications and printing capabilities.

 



The Doppio's form factor comprises a detachable 10.2-inch tablet with an enhanced-brightness and high-resolution 1024-by-768 Multi-Touch Capacitive Screen; its base, meanwhile, includes a QWERTY chocolate-style LED backlit keyboard. Both components contain an independent lithium 6000 mAh battery capable of offering 10 hours of usage individually; when docked together, the devices provide a combined battery life of up to 15 hours.
