In a market where lightweight design and stylish looks can generate some much needed hype, it would be just a matter of time before a tablet company steps forth with the “world’s thinnest tablet” claim.
Meet the 10-inch OGT tablet from the relatively unknown company OGT Mobile. First teased in February with a snapshot of the device, we now know that this tablet from OGT Mobile will be just 7mm (0.28 inches) thick and weight only 1.2 lbs (0.55kg). For comparison’s sake, the iPad 2 is about 8.8mm (0.34 inches) thick and 1.35 lbs (0.61kg).
Under the hood, the OGT tablet will reportedly include a 1 GHz processor of unknown make and name, front and rear cameras, and come in multiple models, either with 16GB or 32GB SSDs or with 3G or WiFi-only support. AndroidCentral is also claiming that the new thin tablet will be the “industry’s first true color display” at 188 ppi, which noticeably beats out the 152 ppi and 132 ppi of the Motorola Xoom and iPad, respectively.
If OGT Mobile can deliver on these promises, the ultra-thin OGT tablet would surely take headlines away from the more well-known tablet makers. Release dates are still unknown, however, but Electronista is predicting its official reveal this summer.
