It's always fun to poke at Android-related snafus that retailers, especially as big as Best Buy, make in their promotional materials, and today is one of those days.

Android Police reader Marc forwarded us an email from Best Buy Canada sent to Canadian customers yesterday that shows this impressive Asus Tablet PC, powered by Windows 7. Except, it has an Andy peaking out from behind and is clearly running a build of Android (it's not Honeycomb or Gingerbread by the looks of things and resembles Éclair).

Surely, that's probably incomplete information and this tablet exists in 2 flavors or dual boots Android and Windows, right? Nope - it's a Windows 7 only Asus Eee slate with a Core i5 processor (maybe Canadian Windows is based on Android?)

Oh, Best Buy, your marketing interns are just top notch.

Thanks, Marc!

    That's also a viewsonic logo front and center.

    Still, the ASUS EP121 is an amazingly powerful tablet.

    You can actually *do* something with it because it can run productivity apps.

    Oh and it has a Wacom digitizer with 256 pressure levels and a very high quality display. Also, it has a capacitive touch screen for normal touch input.

    Did I mention it comes with 4GB of Ram, a core i5 and a 64GB SSD for only $1100USD? That's not much more than an android tablet.

    Sure the battery life is the same as a notebook, but it's a nice little device if you want a tablet to create content!

    And yes, I have one on preorder :P

    yes that is what I want....something more powerful than the asus memo. What's the point of a tablet that doesn't have photoshop?
