Korean device maker iriver has introduced a new 7 inch Android tablet which which is expected to sell for about $229 in Korea. It’s a decent looking device, but I’m not sure it lives up to its name: iriver calls the tablet the WOWtab.
The iriver WOWtab ITQ700 features a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. The tablet has WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS capabilities.
In other words, it matches the Google Nexus 7 nearly spec for spec. One of the only differences is that the WOWtab has a microSD card slot for extra storage.
But the Google Nexus 7 is nearly a year old, and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor is starting to look a bit dated.
It’s not clear whether iriver has any plans to offer the WOWtab outside of Korea.
