NEC working on a Tablet PC (subscription required) is reporting that NEC has a slate-style tablet in the works aimed at business users that is supposedly as “capable as a personal computer”.

According to Crunchgear, their Tablet PC will features a 7 to 8-inch LCD display and quick booting and access to the cloud. Plan is to sell 100-200k annually in Japan, no mention of elsewhere.


Slashgear reports the sample in the photo appears to be running a flavor of Android. While Android is a powerful mobile OS, I wouldn’t go so far as to say it is as capable as a PC, particularly when there are actual Tablet PCs running the lean, mean OS Windows 7, like Rob’s 8.9″ Motion LS800. Do you think an Android-based tablet could really be as capable as a PC?
