Nintendo DS or the First NEC Android Tablet?

The answer is the first NEC Android tablet, despite it’s incredible similarity to the Nintendo DS.  Pictured to the left is the NEC LifeTouch, and Android 2.1 based tablet with a 7 inch touch screen that will respond to both finger and stylus input.

I know you want specs and for me to shut up, so here they are:

  • ARM Cortex A8 CPU
  • Mobile DDR 256MB
  • Wi-Fi IEEE802.11b/11g
  • Bluetooth Ver.2.1 + EDR
  • 3MP camera
  • GPS
  • accelerometer
  • internal mono mic
  • internal stereo speakers
  • SD/SDHC slot, two USB 2.0 ports
  • 8 hours of battery life

The unit is being released in Japan (of course) this October, and is being hawked to businesses as the “Cloud Communicator” as well as the LifeTouch.  Crunchgear.com has more pics to check out. I am looking forward to seeing what kind of tablets who do finally see in the U.S. Android Tablet FTW!
