It seems the month of July is turning out to be a season of tablet PCs as not one or two but its 5 tablets in all that is coming our way – courtesy Aigo. Yes, the company that has been making USB memory sticks and Solid State Drives for several years now has gone into overdrive and decided to unleash all of 5 tablet PCs in one go. So come July, there will be Aigo Tablets in the 4, 5 and 7 inch categories available from retailers.
The most noteworthy amongst the 5 tablets from Aigo that stands for ‘patriot’ in Chinese is perhaps the N700, which if it indeed makes it to the market will be the first Tegra 2 powered Android tablet to do so. What makes the N700 Tablet PC special is the impressive array of features that makes it a top class tablet to look forward to. Built on the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform, the N700 right now will be running the Android 2.0 though the 2.2 Froyo will also be included as and when the OS becomes commercially available. Connectivity options will be taken care of by the built-in 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth functionalities. Of course, the highlight of the N700 is likely to be the same 7-inch capacitive touchscreen. Storage requirements will be taken care of by a 32GB of disk space.
We can consider ourselves lucky if both the availability as well as the price of the product is revealed at one go. In the case of Aigo, we are half lucky since no pricing structure concerning the 5 tablet PCs has been disclosed. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait a long time for that to be known as its only next month that the tablets will be with the retailers.
