When it comes to Tegra 2-powered Android tablets, the Notion Ink Adam, the Viewsonic G, and Motorola's upcoming Honeycomb tablet are all the rage, but a small company called Stream TV would like to remind you that it's got a dual-core tablet of its own. Indeed, Stream TV is now shipping its eLocity A7 tablet, complete with a 7-inch display, Android 2.2 Froyo, and of course, the aforementioned nVidia Tegra 2 processor. For now, the company is only shipping it to those who pre-ordered it back in September, though Walmart, NewEgg, BJs, and Tiger Direct should be carrying the device for about $399 shortly, while Amazon will soon be touting it for just $369. Not a bad deal, I must admit.

Full press release follows:

    6x 1-star reviews on Amazon and that's it - yeah...
    Edit: All those reviews are talking about a botched up and delayed for months pre-order. The Amazon page still has it listed as "temporarily out of stock."

    • Rome

      All of those 1-star reviews are by disgruntled people who pre-ordered it and then had the delivery date pushed back. None of them have the tablet yet.

    Looks good to me... figure if the stock os flops the roots should do good haha look forward to seeing more :)

    i ordered this 2 days ago and got it today! It's very nice. I also have the ViewSonic G tablet and as much as I tried to like it even with it hacked, the screen is absolutely terrible. All the blacks has this "reflection" and it messes with your eyes. As trivial as that sounds, it actually VERY annoying. I like the Elocity A7 and the form factor. It's a little wider than the Samsung Tab but I can still hold it in one hand. Now I'm just waiting for someone to release a hack for this and crossing my fingers we get Android Market access soon!

    Bought one of these and I think they are pretty good for the money paid (it's not an iPad however). I did have a hard time finding a case for it. However, found a small company that makes a pretty good sleeve for this unit and sells them for only $8.95 with free freight at http://www.nuvo-tek.com.

    By the same token, if anyone knows of where I can buy a case (not a sleeve) that is a good fit for this eLocity unit, please let me know.
