Polaroid Hits Spectrum Tablet Line Up
The famous camera company Polaroid is tapping into the Android tablet market with the three new tablet PCs branded with the name Spectrum that is unveiled at CES 2012. It seems unlikely but this isn’t the first time it tried its luck with tablets. It may be recalled that at last year’s CES, they gave a preview of Polaroid Tablet TC 970.
In this year’s CES, they showed pre-release units of the Spectrum line of tablet PCs. Said tablets were running Android 2.2 and 2.3 Gingerbread and were thus, considerably slower than many of those available at the event. Polaroid, however, revealed that before 2012 ends, they will have released tablets running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The new Polaroid tablets will come in three sizes: 7, 8, and 9 inches, which it will carry into the product name: Spectrum 7, Spectrum 8, and Spectrum 9. The Spectrum 7 will have a pixel display resolution of 1024 x 600 whereas the Spectrum 9 will have 1024 x 768p.These panels will all be capacitive 10-finger input touchscreens.
These tablet PCs will carry a Cortex A18 1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. They will also have dual cameras, with 2MP at the front and a 5MP at the rear. The Spectrum tablets will have between 4 and 16GB of external storage. They will be available in various colors, of blue, yellow, pink, white, and green.
