According to its official website, a Taiwanese company called Camangi is now on the verge of launching its previously concept-only WebStation MID in early December. Featuring an Apple-esque design, much like the Boeye MID 700, the WebStation is also an Android tablet running version 1.5 of the mobile OS. The device features a 7-inch WVGA glass touchscreen and comes with a choice of either a black or white bezel. Other known specifications include 802.11 b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, a microSD slot, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 0.3MP webcam for video conferencing.
A variety of inbuilt apps, such as the web browser, email, and VoIP, are included in the system. In addition, the WebStation can also serve as an e-book reader, digital photo frame, and music/video media player with a retractable stand helping to facilitate these roles. The tablet should cost around $399 when it launches early next month. Interested parties can register at the official website for the latest updates and a chance to receive an “early bird” discount coupon. The site also mentions that Camangi is looking for Android developers to contribute new apps for the device.
