Well, it looks like Motorola's updates to Android 2.1 Eclair updates aren't the only things leaving users hopelessly disappointed due to delays; Stefano Giovannoni's AlessiTab, which promises to be the ultimate kitchen device, has just been delayed from its scheduled release date of October to a vague point in November of this year. Worse still (at least for us who live in the United States), the home tablet will initially launch exclusively in Italy, and for the price of €399 (about $535), which is a full €99 more than what it was originally priced at. Still, with:
- a DVB-T digital TV tuner
- a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen
- a front-facing camera for video chat
- a unique and super sexy design (see pictures above)
it's no wonder this device got me so excited at first. That was, of course, before I discovered it's still running Android 2.1 Eclair and doesn't include access to the Android Market.
