Olivetti Throws Hat Into Android Tablet Game With Olipad 110 and 70

If you’re not familiar with Olivetti, they’re an Italian electronics company that doesn’t play around, and that shows in their two new Android tablets. They’re both going under the name “Olipad”, with different number designations to specify different tablets. First, let’s take a look at the Olipad 110, with such specs as:

  • 10-inch capacitive multitouch display
  • 1366 x 768 resolution
  • Android 3.1
  • WiFi
  • 3G
  • GPS

I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a nice Honeycomb tablet to me. We couldn’t find any indication of a camera on the device, but I suspect we’ll learn more as we get closer to the tablet’s launch.

Moving on, the somewhat less impressive Olipad 70 brings to the table:

  • 7-inch capacitive multitouch display
  • Android 2.3
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth

Yes, that’s really all we know about the Olipad 70 at the moment. Now, before you go running off to your local Best Buy to look for one of these devices, we are sad to report that they’ll be launching in Brazil, not the U.S., “within the next 60 days”. No word on pricing or a specific release date, but rest assured we’ll be hearing more about these tablets in the coming months. You can watch a quick hands-on video below. Unfortunately, it’s in Portuguese, so you’re all alone for the next minute and 47 seconds.

So, do we have any readers from Brazil that are excited about these two tablets? Drop a comment below!

    i’m from brazil, and i can say that i’m not excited at all, Olivetti used to be a HUGE typewriter manufacturer when it was relevant, but since the nineties they were sunk into oblivion to me (and i guess to everyone), until now. i can’t say they will offer a good support or even a good price. it will probably be priced just below ipad or xoom (what is really overpriced here) what shoudn’t make it a good option, but let’s see… =o)
