The Taiwan based Netronix might be a major player in the field of e-ink based e-readers but the company is showing all signs to tap into other seemingly greener pastures. And none other seems to be as juicy as perhaps the booming tablet segment right now. The recent unveiling of an Android tablet at the CeBIT event in Germany is ample proof of that.
The yet unnamed tablet comes with a 9.7 inch (the same size as that of the first gen iPad) capacitive multi touch display though the screen does look a lot glossy. The tablet runs Android 2.2 Froyo and is based on a Freescale i.mx51 processor. Netronix is however not revealing everything about the tablet just yet though what is known is that the tablet will include microUSB and USB ports, a headphone jack. Also being Froyo based, the usual Android buttons are evident on the bezel. The tablet though presents a nice proposition price wise, as its just $250 that the tablet will cost once it enters market.
