i-Station Z3D, the 3D Android tablet that does require glasses

Posted on 31 August 2010 by Android

Come on, you knew it would come to this. In an industry obsessed with 3D as a means of boosting sales, somebody was bound to introduce a 3D tablet that requires glasses (polarized, no doubt). While other companies like Sharp have 3D tablet ambitions designed around its glassesless parallax barrier display technology, Korea’s i-Station has bolted from the gate with a 7-inch (800×480) Z3D 3D tablet featuring the Android 2.1 OS, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, FM radio, 5000mAh high capacity battery, DMB television, either 32GB or 64GB or storage (depending upon model), and 1080p video support. And really, what could be more convenient than carrying around an extra pair of glasses just for viewing 3D content? A stylus perhaps? One can only hope. Of course, i-Station has plenty of tablet options to choose from including the similarly spec’d “i-Station Dude” and miniature “Buddy,” all pictured above just for you pal. Expect the Z3D to launch in November for KRW600,000 or right around $500.

Window N6: an Android 2.2 tablet with 1GHz Rockchip launches September

Posted on 30 August 2010 by Android

While the competition for iPad may predominantly come from tablets using a more popular ARM processor, like those from Qualcomm, there is another chip gaining favor with some manufacturers. It’s the dual-core RockChip RK2818 1GHz processor, a successor to the 600MHz RK2808. Continue Reading

new250$ Korean Android Tablet looks familiar

Posted on 30 August 2010 by Android

This rather familiar-looking tablet is in fact one of the first Android tablets in the wild. The Identity TAB comes from South Korea’s KT and will cost 300,000 Won, or around $250, and is almost identical to the upcoming Galaxy Tab from Samsung.

The TAB runs Android 2.2 Froyo, and the TFT LCD (multitouch) screen measures seven-inches, which seems to be a sweet spot for Android tablets. It runs on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, is packed with 8GB storage and a gyroscope, plus some great additions not found in Apple’s iPad: a 3MP camera (rear-facing), an SD-card slot and a DMB TV Tuner (sweet!).

As with any tablet facing up to the iPad, it will win or lose based on the smoothness and integration of the operating system and hardware (things much more important when you are interacting with on-screen controls directly) and of course an app ecosystem. The Identity TAB does have one other great advantage: It’s in Korea, which means crazy-good internet. The $250 price is for the unit alone. Sign up for a contract and it is free if you pick a $22 per month WiMax contract from SK Telecom, offering an impossible-to-exhaust 50GB of data. One caveat: from the (translated) wording of various descriptions, it is unclear whether WiMax (called WiBro in Korea) is built-in or requires an external unit or dongle.

Despite the embarrassingly derivative design, the TAB certainly looks like a tablet to watch.

Glasses-Free 3D “Supernova X1″ Tablet Shown Off In China

Posted on 26 August 2010 by Android

The autostereoscopic technology behind the 3DS and Toshiba’s HDTVs (to say nothing of glasses-free 3D products for years) is far from secret, so it makes sense that once 3D started blowing up, we’d see it everywhere. This 3D tablet runs Android (if I’m reading correctly) and will make its official debut at IFA. It likely uses a similar lenticular array as the 3DS, as you can adjust the 3D effect or turn it off entirely. Continue Reading
