Evolve III Maestro can’t choose between Windows 7, MeeGo & Android: picks all three [Video]

How many OSes are too many on a tablet? Evolve III reckons three should be sufficient: its Maestro slate usually spends its time in Windows 7, but can also boot into MeeGo or Android depending on the user's mood and inclination. Demonstrated in all its triple-boot splendor to Geek at CES 2011, the Evolve III Maestro runs Intel's Atom N475 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD.

There's also integrated 3G, a pair of USB 2.0 ports and a microSD slot for up to 32GB cards. The display is 10-inches, and we're guessing at integrated graphics; Evolve III seems to be talking about a potential Oak Trail Atom update later in 2011.

Pricing isn't being revealed at the moment, and that could be a stumbling block; as we've seen with Windows 7/Intel tablets before, they can end up more expensive than their ARM counterparts using "free" software like Android. We'll know for sure when the Maestro arrives on the market in the second half of 2011.
