Hailing from the same shores as Samsung's Galaxy Tab, the Enspert E201 from the Korean company that previously showed us the stylish Inbrics M1 matches some very familiar sounding and compelling specifications with an attractive price tag, almost coming across as a more reasonably priced version of Samsung's premier Android tablet.
Starting with two of the main differences, the E201 has a 7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen instead of the WSVGA display of its fellow Korean counterpart and also notably lacks 3G connectivity. But things look much more appealing after going down the rest of the spec sheet, with a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird (Cortex-A8 CPU + PowerVR SGX540 GPU) processor, 512MB RAM, Android 2.2 Froyo with access to Android Market, a 3MP rear-facing camera with a front-facing webcam, b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, GPS, the usual array of sensors (accelerometer, ambient light etc.), and a range of connections and ports including mini-HDMI, mini-USB, SD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone-out. The device also has a stylish aluminum bodied design boasting excellent build quality as verified by numerous attendees of CES.
Shifting the appeal further up the scale is the Enspert E201's price and availability, with specialist importer Dynamism exclusively selling it in the US for a tempting $349. Keeping in mind the overall specifications and the high quality, this seems to be a compelling option for those wanting to get a premier Android device without having to pay top dollar or signing a long contract with a carrier. Pre-orders from Dynamism are set to start on February 1st, with the first shipments due from the 15th onwards.
For those of you wanting WWAN connectivity and a higher-res screen, the company is preparing the Enspert E301, shown at CES, for launch later this year. Fundamentally very similar to the E201, the E301 adds a SWVGA screen, 3G and possibly 4G connectivity, and a 5MP camera.Carrypad | Dynamism]
