Hannspree tablet

Expect Android tablet news to flow like water as IFA 2010 gets into gear, so let's start things off with a bang.  According to German site Areamobile.de, Chinese manufacturer Hannspree will be introducing a nice, high spec piece of kit that sets a very high bar for others to follow:

  • 10.1 inch 1024x600 display
  • 14 mm thick
  • 1 GHz dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 system on chip
  • 16 GB internal memory
  • HDMI output @ 1080p
  • Accelerometer and ambient light sensor
  • Wifi and Bluetooth
  • Android 2.2

Pick your chin up, and keep an eye out for more news about this one and more from IFA 2010, Dieter's there on the ground, and as long as there's not a beer tent he'll keep us informed. [Areamobile.de] Thanks GaMMeLHaNsy!

I've had good luck with my budget Hannspree monitors. This could be a very good thing.

Damn Jerry/Phil. I hope you guys have ALL HANDS ON DECK For IFA! Bring your running shoes!... We want pics and video of EVERYTHING!

I hope the tablets do start flowing. I never thought i would want one, but it's now like I need one. I just hope the prices don't get out of hand like the I-fortune. I also don't want to be stuck with a wireless plan. Cant wait to see what is going to come out in the show. And on a side note give us some good pictures from the beer tent.

Gimik says:

damn this is absolutely perfect. They keep the price reasonable and everyone will get one.

No front facing camera, no deal

beasleybiz says:

With Wi-Fi and your handy dandy rooted Android phone and Barnacle Wi-Fi tether this is a match made in heaven!

HighDef says:

The only thing missing is an HDTV receiver.

deputyjones says:

Now we're talking. This I would buy.

Masteric says:

Agree with previous poster: no camera, no deal.

chicojd says:

WTF? No camera? NONE? For $500.00? Who the hell is gonna buy this?

beasleybiz says:

Don't know about the rest of you, I have never taken a pic with my laptop, this is what I'd use to replace that. If I want a pic I'll use my 8mp DX, or break out a camera.

Blueman101 says:

I would also venture to be surprised if this did not come with a camera OF ANY KIND. FFC's are now becoming the standard and if this does not have at least one camera, I feel this great item will flop.

Can't wait, come on Thursday

There are some super high-rez images on the Areamobile.DE site http://www.areamobile.de/bilder/76791-original which are clearly photoshop or render-engine drawings.

At this late juncture, having shopped photos makes me suspect this thing hasn't actually been manufactured yet. So who knows if a cam will slip in before release.

Blueman101 says:

No Android Tablet will be bought by me until Google allows Tablets into the Android Market.

Archerdude says:

I thought that the 2.2 froyo was getting into the market.

Blueman101 says:

I don't believe so, but I would be very happy to be wrong. The new Archos tablets (also on 2.2) are not going to be Android market enabled, so I assume that this wont be either.

TimeHunter says:

If it's as nice as my 23 HANNspree monitor, it will be pretty dandy.
