It’s really unfortunate that we don’t come across timely releases of tablet devices as often as we experience delays. The latest device to have been hit by the delay bug is the ELocity A7 tablet device that Stream TV had first promised in August would be available in the following month. Now, two months later, when we are in the end of November, the company has come up with a fresh launch date and this time again, it’s the following month once more that we can expect to see the Elocity A7 . At least, that’s what customers who had placed their orders for the tablet are being told.
As for the tablet, there is reason for one to look forward to the Philadelphia based start-up company’s offering. It has a 1 GHz Tegra dual core heart running Android Froyo right out of the box. Up front, the Elocity A7 has a 7 inch capacitive multi-touch screen with a resolution of 800 X 480 pixels. While we can surely appreciate more pixels to make the display more lively, the screen manages to impress one and all with its fast response times.
The Elocity also comes with a lot of other features like an accelerometer, a front-facing 1.3 megapixel webcam, a SD card slot and a USB port. The tablet also includes an HDMI port that will let the Elocity A7 play back HD videos on a compatible TV with the least of fuss. All of this at a price of $399 which makes the Elocity A7 a lot more alluring than the Galaxy Tab. That is, the Elocity makes it to the markets.
