Stream TV Networks, Inc., the Philadelphia based company has announced they are now ready to wade deeper in the tablet segments with better and bigger machines. Their latest tablet offerings – the 10 inch eLocity A10 tablet which the company claims is a generation ahead of what it had on offer until now is up for pre-order. Pre-sales start from the 15th of this month with e-tailers including Amazon, J&R, B&H, and TigerDirect currently taking orders for the Android tablets.
A good thing with the eLocity A10 is that though it’s a single model on offer, it comprises of three versions that differ on the basis of their storage capacities. The base version has just 4 GB on offer though the next in line comes with 32 and 64 GB of on board storage. Price wise, the base tablet would cost $399 which goes up to $599 for the 32 GB model and $699 for the top end 64 GB version.
However, all the tablet versions have everything else in common. Like the tablet is built around a 1 GHz dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 T250 processor with 1MB L2 Cache coupled to a 512 MB DDR2 RAM. A 10.1 inch IPS multitouch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels makes up the front of the tablet and is in fact a lot better than the earlier eLocity A7 tablets.
These apart, the tablets come with other features such as 802.11b/gn Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, an USB 2.0 port, HDMI port capable of outputting 1080p videos along with a 3-axis accelerometer and ambient light sensor. There is a Micro SD Card Slot that will allow memory to be upped by 32 GB at a time. A 3.5mm Headphone jack, a 1.3 MP front facing camera and twin speakers complete the spec story of the tablet that measure 10.9 X 7 X 0.5 inches and weights 1.72 lbs.
Operating system for the eLocity A10 is Android 2.2, though its makers have stated that Honeycomb will be integrated via a software update at a later time.
More on this is awaited.
