Europeans will soon have a nice Honeycomb option to choose this summer. Named Liberty Tab, the tablet has been developed by Packard Bell and is expected to go on sale this June. Packard Bell is however holding on to the price information for the time being. Also, there is an interesting aspect to the Liberty Tab and it’s all about the striking similarity that it shares with the Acer’s Iconia Tab. Actually, the Liberty Tab is the re-branded version of the Iconia Tab. This shouldn’t be the least surprising considering Packard Bell is the European subsidiary of Acer.
As for the Liberty Tab’s specs, not only is it similar to the Iconia Tab but also with the host of Honeycomb tablets that already have been launched or announced. So behind the 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display lurks the Honeycomb standard 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor. The tablet will be both 3G and Wi-Fi enabled along with Bluetooth as well as GPS. The Liberty Tab also comes with integrated 2 megapixel and 5 megapixel camera at the front and rear of the device. The tablet also boasts of Dolby Mobile audio with integrated stereo speakers.
The Liberty Tab will come in cherry red and pearl white schemes, which make the tablet really appealing. In fact, with almost all the Honeycomb tablets sporting the same specification, it would be interesting to see how manufacturers manage to individualize their wares. Maybe adding a touch of color can spice thing up and the Liberty Tab is ample proof of that.
