How about a slate that runs Android 2.2, based on Nvidia Tegra 250 and available right now? Made by Japanese company Mouse Computer, the Luvpad slate packs a 10 inch display and can be bought locally for $466. It’ll be available at the end of the month on the Japanese market, as a rival for Toshiba Folio 100 and Samsung Galaxy Tab.

Here’s a specs list for the device:

Display: 10.1 inch LED TFT multitouch screen, 1024 x 600 pixels
Memory: 8GB flash memory, 512MB RAM, microSD card slot
Connectivity, WiFi, no 3G
Weight: 760 grams

Could this be a genuine iPad killer in Japan, considering the Apple gadget’s price is about $576?
