Sick of your friends carrying around a pretty iPad? Well look no further, Pierre Cardin has gone where no other designer dared. He designed a tablet PC that will turn heads... maybe... either way. It will look good, and it will be Android, that is enough to worry Steve Jobs.

I know this isn't exactely my standard technical article, but it shows just how much power they can cram into such a small unit.
