We can't say we have ever really heard of AnyDATA, at least not as a
tablet manufacturer, but the company is diving into the highly
competitive tablet universe headfirst with a new 7" tablet. In
seriousness, this unit looks almost identical to Samsung
Galaxy Tab, so if you enjoyed that form factor, you'll probably enjoy
this one. It's labeled as the AMD 120/810, a pocket-sized 7" tablet that
will soon be available to the North American market.
The tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm
Snapdragon CPU and has a
WSVGA display, Wi-Fi, built-in EV-DO Rev. A. cellular broadband chip,
and Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). There's also an upgraded version with a
1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8660 chipset if you need extra power. The device
weighs under a pound, and ships with Bluetooth 2.1, a USB 2.0 port, dual
speakers, microphone, and 3.5 mm ear jack; micro SD slot;
as well as an accelerometer, gyroscope, digital compass, and light
sensor. The AMD810 3G version also includes A-GPS and stand-alone
enabling personal navigation.
There is, of course, support for video calling (thanks to a 3MP rear
camera and 1.3MP front camera, HD video playback (HDMI 1080p output) and
Google's Mobile services. There's no mention of an exact price or
release date, but hopefully that'll come soon enough.
