Vodafone in surprising fashion has announced their intentions to launch one 7-inch and one 10-inch tablet under their own branding this November. Vodafone announces the tablets names as Smart Tab 7 and Smart Tab 10, a play on the Galaxy Tab brand from Samsung I suspect. Both of the tablets will, naturally, run Google’s free Android OS with Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
According the official press announcement the two tablets will feature 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processing chips (likely the APQ8060, the same 1.2 GHz chip found in the 16GB and 32GB Wi-Fi HP TouchPad), 1280-by-800 resolution capacitive touchscreens at their respective display sizes, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in internal storage that can be expanded by another 32GB through each tablets microSD card slot, and dual cameras (2MP front and 5MP rear). Dimensions and weight wise the Smart Tab 7 is the only model detailed, it will be 11.4mm thick and weight 391 grams, expect the Smart Tab 10 to be a bit bigger than the 7-inch model.
As Vodafone is a carrier it should be no surprise to you that they intend to include mobile broadband for the Smart Tab’s, Vodafone says the Smart Tab 7 and 10 will have HSDPA ‘turbo mobile broadband’ with up to 14.4 Mbps download speeds and up to 5.76 Mbps upload speeds –WLAN is also included to back you up as well.
Vodafone will release these two tablets in Germany, that’s been confirmed in the only English press release posted online so far. Other European locations should get these tablets, though.
