The Tegra 2-running Hannspree Android tablet debuting at IFA
Here’s a preview of one of the (sure to be) many tablets that will be on display at this year’s IFA show. The Hannspress tablet does have quite a few things going for it though. To start, it offers a 10.1-inch capacitive multitouch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. Second, it’s running Android 2.2 from the get-go. Finally, and perhaps the most interesting, it will use a 1GHz Tegra 2 processor all for the iPad-beating starting cost of €399.
The Hannspree tablet doesn’t stop there. Other fleshed out specs include a 16GB SSD, SD card slot, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, mini-USB 2.0 port, mini HDMI, a 3500mAh battery rated for 8 house of video playback, and access to the official Android Market. It measures 10.24 x 6.73 x 0.55 inches and weighs about 1.75 lbs. Internal goodies comprise of a Chrome browser, calendar, email, media players, YouTube, social media and other pre-loaded applications.
Hannspree will be shipping their tablet in November, but we’ll probably see some hands-on video demonstrations within a few days.
