The first Slate from Realease will be available this August! It features a 10-inch version is based on Free scale’s i.MX37 (ARM 11) processor; while the second model features Freescale’s i.MX51 (ARM Cortex A8) processor. The developers claim that you can also run Google Android on it as well, although it will only be shipped with Linux. Both devices will be compliant with HTML 5 and Adobe Flash technologies.
There is a ton of great hardware features on the device such as three USB 2.0. You’ll also find Ethernet connector, a microphone port, as well as a port for headphones. There is a front facing web cam, an accelerometer and motion sensor that will turn the device on when it detects movement.

The developers hype this is a niche device, aimed at small companies to be able to make custom applications for a myriad of uses. The company claims they will change the designing, and color to suit their customers.
