The 7-inch and 10.1-inch models will each sport Android 7.0 Nougat, a MicroSD slot for expansion, and special photo-editing software for a starting price of just 100 Euros.

Best known for its lineup of inexpensive yellow point-and-shoot cameras, Kodak is now ready to launch a series of tablets under a branding partnership with French manufacturer Archos. The devices were announced earlier this year with a Summer 2017 launch window and it looks as if Kodak will be keeping true to its word.

Beginning in July, users in Europe will be able to purchase 7-inch and 10-inch Kodak Android tablets for only 100 Euros and 170 Euros, respectively. Both models will come with pre-installed applications that focus on editing, sharing, and printing photos in order to standout with the cheap tablet crowd.

The octa-core MediaTek MT8321 SoC will power both models with 1 GB of RAM, 8 MP and 2 MP rear and front cameras, 802.11b/g/n wireless, 3G support, and 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage space. Display resolutions and battery capacities, however, differ significantly as the smaller unit will carry a 1024 x 600 resolution screen and 2500 mAh battery while the larger will have a 1280 x 800 screen and 6000 mAh battery. Unsurprisingly, battery life will be longer on the 10.1-inch model at 5.5 hours compared to 3.5 hours on the smaller version.

The Kodak tablets come just one month after the manufacturer launched its Ektra smartphone in the United States.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
