Skytex unveils new SkyPad Argos, promises Alpha 2 ICS update soon
CES is starting to wind down, but that doesn't mean the announcements and unveilings of tablets are doing the same thing. Today, Skytex, a name we've seen before from the Primer Pocket and the SkyPad Alpha 2, has announced a new model of the SkyPad line, which the company is calling the SkyPad Argos. Skytex also confirmed that the existing Alpha 2 will be getting an update to Ice Cream Sandwich soon.
Anyway, let's talk about the new Argos tablet. Like the Alpha 2, it will cost roughly around the low price point of $199. Spending those two Benjamins (or whoever else is on a 100-unit note in your respective country) will get you Ice Cream Sandwich, a single-core 1.2GHz processor, Mali 400 GPU, and 8GB of internal storage, not to mention the 7-inch 1024 x 600 capacitive display.
The Argos also has a removable back; unfortunately, it's just for show, as Skytex plans to bring backings with different colors to the market, as well. Still, less than $200 in Skytex's eyes certainly gives you a heck of a tablet for the money. I hope the company will push these into big box stores and even megastores like Walmart. Putting a cheap yet quality tablet into a lot of hands would almost certainly help the brand skyrocket in terms of popularity.[Lilliputing]
