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.
