NEC debuts the LifeTouch L tablet

The lightweight device packs a dual-core TI processor and an IPS panel

The Japanese tech company NEC is about to start selling a new thin and light Android tablet. Reportedly, the device is called LifeTouch L and will first hit the stores in Japan. According to the maker, this slate PC will be available in two variants; one is apparently aimed at “individuals”, while the other one is more business-oriented.

The two models share pretty much the same specs starting with the OMAP4460 SoC (system on a chip) from Texas Instruments. The CPU accommodates two ARM Cortex-A9 cores operating at a frequency of 1.5GHz and the PowerVR SGX540 graphics controller. Furthermore, both sets of users will be provided with a 10.1-inch IPS (In-Plane Switching technology for improved viewing angles) LED-backlit touchscreen display that offers a native resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels.

The LifeTouch L presumably comes with 1GB DDR2 RAM, up to 32GB of on-board flash storage (16GB in the business tablet), Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR radios.  Moreover, it sports two integrated stereo speakers, a couple of microUSB ports (client/host), a microHDMI interface, dual cameras (a 5MP camera on the back + a 1.2MP front-facing web cam), a GPS receiver and your usual array of sensors.

Measuring just 7.99mm thick (0.31in), NEC’s new tablet runs on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. In addition, the LifeTouch L weighs 540g (1.19lbs) with the built-in battery pack, which reportedly has an autonomy period of up to 13 hours (or up to 10 hours when watching videos) on a single charge.

The manufacturer claims the slate PCs will go on sale in July. Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing as of now.
