Pandigital has upped the ante with the 9 inch tablet and e-reader device that it had launched a while ago. And this time, the company has on offer an enhanced version of the device which now boasts of an in built 3G connectivity.
The Pandigital Multimedia Novel comes with a 9 inch touch screen and runs Android 2.0. The company has entered into a partnership with the Barnes & Noble BookStore which acts as the official supplier of content for the device. However, the device could only connect to the internet via Wi-Fi and the only natural progression for the device could be in the form of a 3G version of the same.
Well, that sure has happened with AT&T doling out the contract free service which means there are no fixed rentals in place. One will only have to pay as they use the service, though there is a small problem. The 3G service is not available in entirety. The service is limited to only downloading e-books and will not cover surfing the web. So one will still have to rely on their Wi-Fi networks to browse the internet.
Everything else about the tablet remains the same except the price. The 3G enabled Pandigital Multimedia Novel will set one back by $280.
