Camangi Tweaks Webstation, Still Has Long Road Ahead

Camangi is sending out emails today in an effort to let people know about their revised Android-based Webstation.  According to the hardware maker, the new version of their tablet features a firmware update as well as some preloaded applications.  We did some checking around and found that and specially designed flavor of the Aldiko e-reader app comes installed. Further, fring, the software that provides calls and chat (facebook, twitter, Skype, MSN, GTalk, Yahoo messenger, AIM, SIP) is also loaded on the Webstation.

At $275, the price is still a bit expensive when one looks at similar offerings from other companies. However, a a few more preloaded apps or Android Market integration could go a long way to turn heads.

Webstation specs include:

  • Web browser, Email/Gmail Web, Digital Frame, Aldiko ebook, Gallery, Music, Video, fring, Weather and so on
  • 7-inch resistive TFT LCD touchscreen; 800-by-480 pixels resolution; 16 million color
  • 8 GB SD card memory for over 10,000 ebooks, 30,00 songs, 10,000 photos
  • Aldiko eBook viewer: EPUB; Photo viewer: JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP; Audio playback: 3GP, MP3, OGG, MID, WAV; Video playback: 3GP, MPEG4
  • Standby time: up to 4 days(without GPS & WiFi connection); Internet and media use: up to 4-5 hours
