The Ice Cream Sandwich-powered, 10-inch slate will land in November for $400 with a detachable, full QWERTY keyboard dock, dubbed the “coverboard”. The keyboard connects to the tablet magnetically. Most notably the coverboard boasts keys for Home, Recently Opened, etc making browsing the Android OS more streamlined.
