7-Inch OpenPeak OpenTablet Spotted At IDF, Launching In Q1 2011 With Froyo

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

This isn't the first time we heard about it but OpenPeak is showing off their 7-inch OpenTablet at IDF 2010 this year (I mean, right now). This tablet is scheduled to hit AT&T sometime in Q1 of next year so this is still quite distant into the future. However, the prototype being showcased was running stock Android 2.1 very smoothly. Fortunately the company will be shipping this with Android 2.2 "Froyo" but at that point it'll be running a custom UI so it won't be the stock build.

Specs include a capacitive touchscreen display, WiFi b/g/n support, Bluetooth, 3G connectivity, a 5MP camera, and an Intel Moorestown CPU. Clock speed for this processor is unknown right now but Engadget believes it was possibly 1.9GHz. Official pricing is unknown right now but it could be $300 to $400 contract-free and subsidized on contract, of course.

Labels: , , , , , ,

The ZTE Blade aka Orange's Project JAL has just been made official. Project JAL was just a codename for an Android handset that would be great for people on a budget. When it launches it'll be called Orange San Francisco - for reasons unknown. This handset packs a 3MP camera, 150MB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi / Bluetooth support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, 3G connectivity, and Android 2.1. For a budget handset, this is a pretty decent spec sheet and it looks quite attractive. The launch date is still unknown but it's reportedly been delayed until the end of this quarter - so that means later this month I suppose.
