Not all tablets need to be the dual-core 10-inch beasts like the Motorola Xoom and the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer that are "duking" it out for market dominance right now. Enter the BeBook Live Android Tablet, later this summer. BeBook is more known for their eReaders than actual tablets, but later this summer they are coming out with their BeBook Live tablet based upon Android 2.2, and other, "more base-line", specs than the current market juggernauts. The tablet will be a 7-inch multi-touch with the following details:
  • 1GHz Cortex from Samsung
  • Resolution of 800 x 600
  • 512MB of SDRAM
  • 4GB of internal flash storage
  • microSD card slot with support for cards up to 32GB
  • 1MP front camera for video conferencing
  • Mini HDMI port.

While the specs won't win any tech-awards, the price is decent at $280 bucks. It will also come pre-installed with support for Adobe DRM for publishing PDF files, and other apps including EBuddy, Rockplayer, and a game called Tank Hero. We still don't know an exact launch date, but will keep you informed. I still think that this little tab will have a hard time competing with an Amazon Android Tablet if it does indeed come out this summer as predicted. What do you think?
