WSL Japan has reportedly joined the parade of ICS-based devices with the introduction of its Xvision an4 tablet. And whilst the company is perhaps not a household name in the United States or Europe, it is supposedly a relatively popular electronics manufacturer in Asia.
In a press release dated two days ago, the Tokyo-headquartered outfit announced that the upcoming Xvision an4 slate will be powered by an Amlogic 8726-M3 (this is essentially a Cortex A9 chip with Mali-400 GPU) central processing unit which packs one core with a clock frequency of 1GHz. Furthermore, the device offers a 4:3 LCD multitouch-enabled display that measures 9.7-inch in diagonal and has a native resolution of 1024-by-768 pixels.
The new Xvision tablet will come with 1GB of internal DDR3 memory and 16GB of onboard storage. In addition, the 10.4mm thick (about 0.40 inches) device sports Wireless LAN and Bluetooth adapters accompanied by optional 3G and GPS antennas. Other features reportedly include the above mentioned Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and two built-in cameras – a rear 2.0MP one and a front-facing web camera with VGA quality.
According to the manufacturer, the Xvision an4 tablet will become available to customers in Japan in April of this year for a yet undisclosed price. There is still no word if the device will be getting a North American or a European release.
