The CTL 2goPad SL10 is probably the only bonafide Windows 7 tablet out there ( the others being the Dell Inspiron Duo and the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 sporting hybrid form factors).

The 2goPad is loaded with connectivity options which includes  two USB ports, an Ethernet socket, SD card reader as well as headphone and mic jacks. There’s also a Mini VGA output.

The 2goPad has a 1024×600-resolution, 10.1-inch capacitative LCD display. The system is powered by a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 2GB of RAM and a has a 250GB hard drive.

Essentially, this device is netbook without a keyboard and it therefore has similar drawbacks as a netbook.

Engadget has reviewed the device and feel that the device is somewhat sluggish with a poor battery life. It’s suffice to say that the implementation of Windows 7 into the tablet form factor has been suboptimal thus far. Windows 7 is more suited for a desktop/netbook computing form factor and this is one area where Windows 7 needs a revamp to suit the tablet computer. Could Windows Embedded Compact 7 be a better alternative?
