FreedomPop launches Liberty, its first Android tablet
Yesterday, FreedomPop celebrated its second birthday and one year since they started offering free talk, text, and data. To do this properly, they announced their first own branded devices, all with prices below $100 USD. While the FreedomPop Frenzy phablet and one LTE Android smartphone will arrive in the coming months, the FreedomPop Liberty tablet is already shipping.
FreedomPop Liberty has very basic specs, but it is priced accordingly - only $89 USD. These are its highlights:
- Processor: 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9
- Memory/Storage: 512 MB RAM; 4 GB internal memory and microSD support
- Display: 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with 1,024X600 pixels
- Camera: 2 MP rear, 0.3 MP front
- Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB 2.0
- Operating system: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- Battery: 2,400 mAh
- Weight/Dimensions: 0.7 pounds; 7.2X4.8X0.4 inches
This tablet will be followed next month by the 4G LTE-capable FreedomPop Frenzy, a new Android phablet that will retail for only $99 USD. In addition to these products that carry the FreedomPop brand, the company will soon cut the prices of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Note 3 by 50 percent.
