Dual-booting on mobile devices? Psh, that’s so yesterday. Tri-booting is all the rage now and the folks at Evolve III, an Australian firm, are ahead of the curve. They’ve introduced the Maestro C and Maestro S, two tablets that can tri-boot Android, Windows and Meego. The only differences between the two are that the C has a side-mounted kickstand and can be used with a keyboard ala ASUS’ Transformer.

It’s a tablet that was designed with the business professional in mind, and unsurprisingly, it’s also a tablet that was priced with the business professional in mind – you can get the Maestro C and S in Australia for AUD$825 and AUD$800, respectively. Take a quick look at what’s under the hood:

  • 1.5GHz Intel Atom “Oak Trail” processor
  • 2GB DDR2 RAM
  • 32GB SSD (optional 64GB)
  • 2 Full size USB Ports
  • microSD card slot
  • HDMI port
  • 1.3MP front facing camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Optional 3G and GPS
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Android
  • Meego

No word on which version of Android will run on this thing, but we’ll be highly disappointed if it isn’t Honeycomb. They opted not to show off the tri-booting functionality in the video for some reason, but if you don’t mind seeing this thing run Windows 7 then hit the play button above. Sadly, there’s no word on if or when this thing will make its way to other regions. [Android Police]
