Hannspree to launch Android 3.0 tablet later this year

Hannspree tablets haven’t really gained much traction in the US, but they keep showing up in Europe. Now the folks at Notebook Italia have spotted a Hannspree tablet roadmap showing the company’s tablet plans for this year.

Right now Hannspree is offering a 10 inch model with a 1024 x 600 pixel display and NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Soon a cheaper model with a Texas Instruments chip will hit the mix. Both models feature WiFi, Bluetooth, and Google Android 2.2. For Android 3.0 Honeycomb you’ll have to wait until the third quarter of the year.

Thats’ when Hannspree expects to launch the SN10T3 tablet with a 10.1 inch display, NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 16GB of storage, and Google Android 3.0. The product roadmap says this model will have a 1280 x 600 pixel display, but if I had to guess, I’d say that’s a typo and that a 1280 x 800 pixel screen is more likely. Either that, or the tablet will be very long and thin.
