Twin-touchscreen Mintpass tablet will dualboot Android and Win 7 in 2011

Korean firm Mintpass is planning a dual-touchscreen tablet for release in the first half of 2011, which would dual-boot between Android and Windows 7.

So far there's no word on what version of Android the Mintpass tablet might use, what processor(s) it will adopt, or any of the other specifications.
