Haleron iLet Mini HAL the latest device to join the 7-inch tablet army
After learning of the Haleron iLet Mini HAL, I feel as if we are in the midst of an invasion of 7-inch MID tablets with the SmaKit S7, Mastone Prowave, WITS A81, and new tablets from Archos (likely the leaked Archos 7 Android) all fighting for the limelight over the past week!
A successor to the original iLet Mini, the iLet Mini HAL still has the 7-inch WVGA touch screen display, but improves in several key areas. Most notably, the new tablet features a 600MHz VIA processor (exact model unspecified), double the speed of its predecessor, and runs Android in place of Windows CE 6.0, although WinCE is still offered as an option. Other specifications include 128MB DDR2 RAM, 2GB local flash storage, b/g WiFi, optional 3G, support for microSD cards up to 32GB, two USB 2.0 ports, microphone input and audio output, and in-built stereo speakers. Regarding battery life, the HAL is rated at 16 hours of active use and 72 hours of standby.
Some other interesting highlights on the company's product website include HAL owners receiving 10GB worth of online storage through Haleron's iConnect service, two available colors of black and white, and the tablet's Android installation (called Ocean Android) being version 1.6, with the ability to be upgraded in the future.
The iLet Mini HAL is clearly a simpler device compared to some of the other recent tablets mentioned earlier, but this is reflected in the price with it being available for order at $199. On the flip side, as pointed out by Liliputing, the product image looks like a rendering and there is some uncertainty regarding the reliability of ordering from Haleron.
