PocketBook International has reportedly introduced another tablet, conveniently dubbed PocketBook A7, to its portfolio of portable devices. Notebookcheck told you back in September of last year, when the manufacturer released its 10-inch A10 slate. This time around, the company is getting ready to launch a 7-inch tablet based on Google’s Android operating system that can apparently be utilized either as an e-reader or as a regular tablet.

The PocketBook A7 is powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP 3621 CPU, which houses an ARM Cortex-A8 processor clocked at 1GHz and the PowerVR SGX530 GPU. In addition, this upcoming tablet is equipped with a capacitive multi-touch screen that measures 7-inches in diagonal and has a native resolution of 1024-by-768 pixels.

The device supposedly comes with 4GB of storage space (expandable by using the built-in micro-SDHC card slot), 512MB RAM and offers support for Android Market. Furthermore, it runs an Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread operating system and features stereo speakers, a headphone jack and a 2MP web camera for video chats.

Reportedly, supported file formats include WAV, MP3, MKV, AVI, MP4, EPUB, PDF, FB2, TXZT, HTML, DOC, and more. Moreover, the tablet will be available in white plastic case and will have a weight of about 410 grams.

No word on pricing/release date as of yet.
