The Stream TV Network’s Elocity A7 tablet has been on and off the news for all the right and the wrong reasons. Like while its NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core chip had really made the device tempting enough, frequent delays made by the tablet in reaching consumers’ end somewhat marred the otherwise feel good factor that the tablet had managed to create around it. But then, the big day has has finally arrived as the company that had first started taking pre-orders back in September has announced they have started with the shipping process.
Now coming to the tablet’s credentials, the Elocity A7 is among the very first to sport the advanced dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 (T20) processor that is more than capable of rendering not only games that require considerable computing power but 3D movies and Adobe Flash as well. The tablet runs Android 2.2 Froyo right from day one though there is no news if the later version, Android 2.3 Gingerboard will also be compatible.
Upfront, the Elocity A7 greets you with a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel resolution capacitive multitouch display while on the inside, the tablet packs in a 512 MB RAM, 4 Gb of internal Flash storage which can be enhanced further to 32 GB by way of the microSDHC memory card slot, a USB port as well as a 1080p HDMI output. The Elocity A7 also boasts of a 1.3 megapixel webcam, two built in 0.5W speakers, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.
The tablet however is still accompanied with a ‘temporarily out of stock’ tag at the Amazon site but is soon likely to be devoid of it as production stabilizes. Also, the Elocity A7 will be seen occupying shelf space at retailers like Walmart, NewEgg, BJs, Tiger Direct and Micro Center soon where the tablet will retail for a quite decent $399 price tag.
