Pandigital is back with a new tablet PC. Called the Pandigital SuperNova, that tablet has also been through FCC. Also, while the SuperNova is being referred to as a tablet, Pandigital though is sticking to its traditional approach of calling tablets as e-readers which is equally applicable to the SuperNova as well.
So, how does the latest Pandigital Tablet eReader (as it is being so referred) live up to its out-of-this-world sort of naming. Well, to begin with, the SuperNova is a budget tablet, which means expectations should be restrained. Its comes with an 8 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 600 x 800 pixels. The tablet (e-reader) runs Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread and comes with a decent set of features which includes built-in mic and stereo speakers, a mini USB port, front 0.3 and rear 3 megapixel camera, HDMI out port along with 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
On board storage with the SuperNova is just 4 GB though there is an SD card slot to add another 32 GB. Android market remains off bound but not SlideMe app store. Also, the SuperNova itself comes pre-loaded with the Barnes & Noble eBook app and store.
So that’s quite some information that the FCC listing reveals, which is in contrast to the vast majority of FCC visitors who prefer to keep things under the cloak. However, the things that Pandigital kept to themselves is the price and availability details. So while it seems the SuperNova won’t be as costly as its name might suggest, we don’t have an inkling as to just much affordable it will be.
