As one of the few Android tablets from a US company, and also one of the few on the market featuring highlights such as an nVidia Tegra 2 processor combined with Android 2.2 FroYo, the eLocity A7 tablet from StreamTV looked like one to watch. Sadly, the device was struck by a few delays and missed its originally promised launch date in October and subsequent dates in November. The last we heard from StreamTV was at the end of last month where it planned to ship units to Amazon in early December.
Luckily it looks like the company has delivered on its promise with confirmation that the A7 is indeed shipping from Amazon with those who pre-order the device receiving their units at the start of the week. For a tempting price of $369.99, the eLocity A7 boasts impressive specifications with the aforementioned Tegra 250 chipset and Android 2.2 OS, a 7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen, 512MB RAM, 4GB local storage, support for microSD cards, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, a 1.3MP webcam, and USB and HDMI ports.
Unfortunately for those of us who didn't place a pre-order, the A7 is currently listed as out of stock on Amazon's product page, but further shipments are expected soon, with the device also heading to other major retailers such as Newegg, Walmart, Sears, and BJs this week. Anyone pre-order an A7 and receive their tablet yet?[Amazon | Press Release via Ubergizmo]
