Our Japanese friends have yet another new option in the quest to find a new Tablet PC. The tablet being referred to is the Malata T2 and it packs some potent hardware that can shame some of the biggies around.
The Malata T2’s front is taken up by the 10 inch touchscreen having a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The tablet runs the latest Android 2.2 Froyo and is centered around a NVIDIA Tegra 2 Corex-A9 dual core chip having a speed of 1 Ghz. System memory amounts to 1 GB while onboard storage stands at 16 Gb. While more here would have been definitely welcome, the saving grace is the Malata tablet includes a Micro SD card slot that can support up to 32 GB cards.
As for connectivity, the T2 includes Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Wi-Fi. The tablet also features a GPS, a 1.3 megapixel webcam and is known to be compliant with Adobe Flash 10.1.
The tablet has already gone on sale in Japan where it costs 49,800 Yen which translates to around $592. However, the Malata T2 tablet is currently available only within Japan and there is no news how long this is going to continue. Sure, those in the US or Europe would have been eager to pick up one of these though that seems unlikely as of now.
