A lot of tablet stories make it to the net though when it comes to actually putting down your money for a promising tablet device, the choice always seems to be a bit constricted. StreamTV though has made things a bit easy by announcing eager consumers can now place pre-orders for Elocity A7 tablet which is now listed at Amazon for a quite affordable $369.99.
As for the tablet itself, its an impressive piece of hardware that comes packed with all the hi-tech stuff that’s needed to make a really strong case for itself. Its built around a powerrful Tegra 250 chipset with a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 core along with nVidia GPU and a 512 MB RAM. Add to that the latest version of Google’s Android 2.2 Froyo OS and what you have is a real pocket rocket of a device. Having the 2.2 Froyo version of Android also means the Elocity A7 will be the first tablet in the US to come pre-loaded with the latest version of Android currently on offer from Google.
“We strive to bring our customers the best possible value for their dollar incorporating the best hardware and software solutions. As the first tablet to become available for pre-order in the US with Android Froyo and Nvidia Tegra II, we are proud to offer the A7 as a step forward in mobile tablet computing at an appealing price point,” says the CEO at Stream TV, Mathu Rajan.
Among the other features that the tablet comes with include a built-in 1.3MP front-facing webcam, a microSD slot which will let you add further to the 4 GB of default onboard storage, USB and HDMI ports, the later being capable of 1080p video playback. Connectivity options with the tablet includes WiFi and Bluetooth. Dominating the front is the 7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen that supports multi-touch.
Included in the package is free software and cable add-ons, which the company says is worth $70. The things that make up the value pack include a gold-plated HDMI cable, USB-to-USB cable for easy transfer of data , along with several software that comes preloaded such as the Documents To Go MS Office mobile productivity suite and the Amazon.com shopping application.
Actually a rebranded Compal NAZ-10, the tablet though suffers from a lack of access to the official Android market, which in turn can limit the otherwise brilliantly speced tablets prospects and possibilities.
