New Polaroid Android tablet will be 7-inches of Ice Cream Sandwich deliciousness

Back at CES, Polaroid showed off its Spectrum 7 tablet, a 7-inch Android slate that was promised to be making its way to store shelves sometime in 2012. That tablet hasn't been launched yet, but a new FCC publishing shows that the camera company is getting even more serious in its tablet business. 

This new tablet is named the Polaroid PMID701i; while a lengthy and somewhat clumsy name, it does follow some other companies' naming conventions by addressing the type of device (MID) and the screen's diagonal measurement (7-inches). 

Unfortunately, specs are where the tablet itself becomes clumsy. The 7-inch display will have a resolution of only 800 x 480, a 1GHz single-core Cortex A8 processor, 512MB of RAM, and only 4GB of internal storage. Luckily, that final spec is expandable by way of a microSDHC card slot. The PMID701i also includes 802.11b/g/n WiFi, although the inclusion Bluetooth connectivity and extra ports remain unknown.

The FCC filing also seems to suggest that the new Polaroid tablet won't be a Google certified device, which means potential owners will have to find a third-party store from which to get their apps.
