Energy Sistem announces 3 affordable “Honeycomb-like” tablets, launching November 19th
Energy Sistem, a company known for low-end PMPs and e-readers, has announced three new Android tablets that they intend to launch on November 19th. The tablets will not be running Honeycomb however, as you can tell from the photo above. These tablets don’t exactly match up with other Gingerbread based tablets though, and that’s because they’ve been doused with a pre-installed Honeycomb-like skin on top of Android 2.3 (I wonder what Google has to say about this). Here’s what we know about them so far.
There will be a 16:9, 7-inch or 4:3, 8-inch screen (with the higher-end model topping out at 1024 x 768), and they each pack an ARM A8 processor and either 4GB or 8GB of storage (with a microSD card slot for expansion). There’s no official word yet on exact prices, but the expected retail value for all three machines falls between $185 and $270. And before you ask, there’s absolutely no word on if or when there will be any ICS lovin’ for them in the future; however, with Google’s claims that Android 4.0 should theoretically run on any device capable of running Gingerbread, it will surely be interesting to see if these tablets get any sort of developer attention or not.
Stay tuned. Muahahah
