Polaroid Intros PMID701i Android 4.0 Tablet
Polaroid is currently preparing to launch its new product called the Polaroid PMID701i. The tablet has recently made an appearance on the website of the Federal Communications Commission which revealed some of its specs.
Unlike previous Polaroid tablet models which had Android 2.2 and Android 2.3 onboard, this device runs on the latest Android software, the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Its display measures 7 inches and has a screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. This is a capacitive panel and offers support for multi-touch gestures. Under the hood is an ARM Cortex-A8 CPU clocked at 1 GHz, 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage capacity. Users can connect to the Internet via built-in WLAN adapter for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi.
This device, however, is not officially certified by Google which means that while users have a web browser with support for tabs and a Google User Interface, the device doesn’t come with the Google Play store. There is a workaround, however, to download third party applications, users may download the Amazon Appstore.
This tablet carries up to 6 hours of battery life when it is used for browsing and 5 hours when it is used for video playback without the use of Wi-Fi.
At the moment, there is no word on how much the device would cost.
