AndyPad Pro low-cost Android tablet now on sale
Cheap and cheerful
The AndyPad Pro - highlighted as a Recommened purchase in Reg Hardware's recent Ten… Budget Android Tablets round-up - has now gone on sale.
The 374g AndyPad comes with a 7in, 1024 x 600 screen, a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 chip, 512MB of RAM, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and HDMI and micro USB ports. It also has front- and rear-facing cameras - 0.3Mp and 2Mp respectively - and Bluetooth.
There's a Micro SD card slot for storage expansion, boosting the built in 8GB or 16GB of Flash. The 8GB model costs a mere £129 - it lacks Bluetooth, and only has a resistive touchscreen.
The 16GB, "Pro" version costs just £50 more.
Dunno, you'd better ask iPad owners - only 512MB of RAM in the iPad 2, think that's quite a popular gadget at the moment!
Can't say it's every really bothered me on my iPad, apart from the apparent lack of page caching in Safari, which I suspect is not entirely hindered by RAM.
Is anybody else reading the name
Look at the website
And you'll see that the "Pro" version has a capacitive screen.
I refuse to enoble a simple forum post!
Am I alone in thinking it sounds like something a laydee might buy for when the painters are in?
What's with the relative camera resolutions...
"It also has front- and rear-facing cameras - 0.3Mp and 2Mp respectively"
I might imagine that whilst on 'chat' you would not wish your target to see you are an ugly fuck but... You wish to deliver higher resolution pictures of your genital paraphernalia?
Is this some sort of Web2.0 concept?
