In Media to ship budget Android tablet in April

The tablet will run Android 2.2, feature a resistive screen and a 600MHz CPU, and cost less than $200
Allen Ngo,

Expect more budget Android tablets to come this year at amazingly low prices. The IPTV service and cable provider In Media Corp. will be rolling out a new tablet worldwide next month called Tablet PC 7 for just $199. One reason why the company is showing an interest in the tablet business, claims In Media CEO Nick Karnik, is to allow users to “migrate from Laptops and Netbook PCs to the more robust applications supported on the Tablet.”

The In Media tablet will be a 7-inch, 800x480 resolution resistive screen with a 600MHz processor and 256MB of RAM. Also included are Wi-Fi, USB, accelerometer, and Bluetooth for keyboard connectivity. For less than $200, the specifications seem fair, but it is questionable if it runs Android 2.2 smoothly.

In Media is not entirely new to the tablet world, however, as the company released a 10-inch Windows 7 Tablet PC last year in Asia. This model contained a front facing camera and HDMI, which are two key specs missing from the new and smaller Tablet PC 7.

The Tablet PC 7 should be available this coming April.

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.
