New Rover Android Tablets to Rival iPad

Rover, a Russian hardware manufacturer, has unveiled 5 new tablets, 4 of which run on Android. These devices look promising, with specs that may even rival the Apple iPad. the most impressive by my standards is the RoverPad TegA W70, which runs android 2.1, has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen, WiFi, 3G, HDMI output, 4GB of flash storage, 512mb of RAM, and finally, a webcam.

As you can see from the photo, it does have a nice screen, and  it reminds me somewhat of the Dell Streak, which is a 5-inch tablet running Android. Obviously, the question remains: when will this device launch, and for how much? As of now, Rover hasn’t announced any pricing or launch dates, but we’ll try to keep you posted.

Of course, the W70 isn’t the only tablet being unveiled. The other 3 Android tablets are the 3WG70, RoverPad Go G50, and the RoverPad Go G72. the 3WG70 sports a 7-inch screen as well, but only runs Android 1.5, with 2GB of storage. The Go G50 and Go G72 both have 128MB of RAM. But, the G50 runs on Android 1.5 with no word on screen size. The G72 joins the W70 and the 3WG70 with its 7-inch screen and a slightly newer Android 1.6, Bluetooth, an Ethernet connection, and optional GPS. Hopefully, these tablets will be released soon, and we’ll be able to get our hands on them without denting our wallet. More on this as it develops.

What do you think? Are you excited about Android making its way onto tablets? Let us know in the comments!

    An unlocked one similar to the Nexus one would be nice.

    They should probably reconsider putting the almost fully drained battery display on their press release shot.

      Doesnt it read 0:59 remaining at 9% battery? That suggests 10hr+ battery life. Perhaps that's why they did it?
      Of course it rarely matters how many minutes a device predicts it has remaining!

    Is Rover trying to imitate Apple's pricing model of locked-in storage to force people to buy more expensive models, or do these tablets use MicroSD cards so that they can all be upgraded to 32GB?

    I would wait for gingerbread when It comes to tablets, because gingerbread will probably support the new resolution of 1280*720.

    I’ve got a couple of test pages that show HTML running the CPU core of an I5-750 at 100% while the flash counterpart runs at 2%.

    And regarding the touch interface, regular HTML sites are actually in the same boat as Flash. Websites that uses a menu system doesn’t work on Mobile Safari either. Quite a few Java enabled websites can’t be navigated on my iPod.

    I’ve gone through rover android tablet rival ipad have a nice key features but the screen is little bit small,well I hope people will like this tablet also..

  16. These devices look promising, with specs that may even rival the Apple iPad. . iPad will always be the king and if anyone can/will be able to dethrone iPad then it will be Android loaded tablets..?

  17. As it stands right now, the Joo Joo doesn’t even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as the iPad. What can you do with one if you don’t have access to an internet connection?

  18. It’s a Android time all manufacturing companies move towards the iPad, RoverPad Go G50   manufactured by the Russian company and it includes all latest features, I hope this killer iPad will launch soon…
