German company Interpad has released details on their website about their up-and-coming Android tablet, slated (get it?) to be released later this year… in Germany. The devices are more costly than the other Android tablets we’ve seen by this point, but you’re getting one hell of a nice device for your money:

  • Dual-Core nVidia Tegra @ 1 GHz
  • 10.1” 1024x600 px screen
  • 512 MB to 1 GB RAM (depending on model)
  • 512 MB to 1 GB ROM, mSD support from 2 to 32 GB (depending on model)
  • Mini USB, mini HDMI, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • 802.11 b/g
  • Bluetooth (depending on model)
  • Android 2.1 (Eclair) – FroYo reportedly to come later
  • Bewegungssensor (Google translate failed on that one – I’d guess it’s an accelerometer)

If this doesn’t turn out to be vaporware and it makes it to the US, we will be some seriously happy campers. Models will range in price from €400 to €500, with the higher-end models coming with 3G, FroYo, GPS, and Camera. Very nice.

    Looks interesting. I still enjoy using my Eken 100, but to be honest, there are 3 issues with it.
    1) Slow
    2) 7" screen is to small
    3) Touch screen is not very accurate

    I am hoping this new tablet will have substantial improvements to the 100

    sometimes i think people who are involved in manufacturing these devices are disconnected from the rest of the world, because if you ask anybody who is willing to pay for such a device, he will say that a 720p sceen is probably the most important thing, so these german guys got to 600 but were lazy enough to make it to 720?

    connectivity is second so there MUST be a an n wifi capability.

    and if there is no front facing camera, then this device is as useless as the iPad.

      I agree it could definitely use a higher res screen - especially since there are a number of 10" netbooks running screens that are 1368(ish?)x768. However, I would guess there is a technical reason they didn't go with a higher-res screen (supplier issues, some unknown hardware issue, etc).

    Bewegungssensor - literal translation would be movement sensor, so I'm guessing your guess is correct.

    I do miss the front facing camera. My mom lives in Germany, and I would love to get her this to skype or fring...

    Just for fun, the second image is a bit FAIL. The Google page is a screenshot taken on Internet Explorer (I'm pretty sure of that because of the style of the buttons) :p

      I see no buttons on the second image?
