Hey, look at what we have here. It's a new lineup of SmartDevices . . . devices! For a little bit of background for our newer readers, this company hasn't made any news in the past two years, but today has announced its 2012 lineup of Android tablets.
Since Pocketables is a site about pocketable tech, we're going to focus on the new SmartDevices S7 tablet. As its name implies, this tablet has a 7-inch display so it certainly falls into our field of expertise. The S7 also includes an OMAP 1GHz dual-core processor, Ice Cream Sandwich, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and HDMI output.
Unfortunately, the S7 (along with the rest of the lineup) will be released in China first, and I don't know if we'll see it elsewhere. Still, it's priced at just 元899 (Chinese yuan), which converts to roughly $142.66. If the device were to make its way over here, it would likely be priced a bit higher than the direct conversion, though.
Even if this first batch of new devices from SmartDevices doesn't make its way to the US, it's still nice to see an old flame of ours back in the business. What do you think of the S7?[iMP3] Thanks, Sere83!
