The UK-based company Andy Pad has revealed full details on two of its upcoming Android tablets.

The first tablet, simply dubbed Andy Pad, is a 7-inch model with a resistive 800x480 resolution touchscreen. The unit comes with an 8GB SSD, 1.2GHz Cortex-A8 CPU, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi, front-facing camera, accelerometer, micro USB, micro SD and mini HDMI with support for 1080p playback. The tablet is currently priced at only £129 ($210 USD).

The second tablet, Andy Pad Pro, is similarly sized but with a capacitive 1024x600 resolution touchscreen instead. This Pro model offers everything listed above, but throws in an extra 8GB for a total of 16GB of storage, a second camera in the rear and Bluetooth connectivity. The Pro version is currently priced at £179 ($291 USD).

Both tablets will ship with Android 2.3, although Andy Pad promises an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade sometime in the future, at least according to its official Twitter feed. Expected battery life is unlisted for both tablets. Presently, the official Andy Pad site is counting down the days until the September 1st launch of both tablet models. Check out the video walkthrough below for a more in-depth look at the tablet in action. Whether or not shipping will be available worldwide or just for a specific region remains to be seen.
