We're not entirely sure what's going on within Gigabyte, but currently it's ODM aka "whitebox" department has much more impressive tablet than its notebook division. That said, the GN-TB100 as the tablet is known as should at least arrive somewhere in retail, although under a different brand so it might take some figuring out as to who will be selling it.

The GN-TB100 isn't a cutting edge tablet as such, but it features a 10.1-inch screen with 1280×800 resolution with four-point multi-touch support. A dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz has been paired up with 1GB of memory to make up the core of the GN-TB100. There will be options for 16 or 32GB of flash storage, but this will be down to Gigabyte's partners to choose and might not be available in all markets.

The GN-TB100 will also come with a 5Megapixel rear camera and a 2Megapixel front camera. It has a microSD and a SIM card slot – for optional 3G connectivity – hidden behind a flap next the mini HDMI connector. We were also surprised to see a mini USB port rather than the now much more popular micro USB connector. There's also 802.11b/g/n WipFu, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, an FM radio, a GPS, G-sensor, gyroscope, digital compass, light sensor and of course a headset jack.

Gigabyte claims that the 4,100mAh battery pack is good for up to 10.5h of 720p video playback. The GN-TB100 will come with either Android 3.2 or 4.0 and Gigabyte will provide a desktop sync application with the tablet. Overall the tablet felt pretty good in the hand and although Gigabyte's claim of it being extremely thin at 12mm is a bit exaggerated, it's not too heavy at 750g. It's a surprisingly good product considering it's Gigabyte's first real attempt at an Android tablet and vastly superior to the notebook divisions Windows tablet.
