Last time I heard the name Airis, it was because the company was behind a 7 inch netbook for the European market. Now it looks like the company is branching out into… 7 inch tablets.
The Airis iTab7 sports a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display and an 800MHz ARM-based processor. It runs Windows CE 6.0 and has 802.11b/g WiFi and optional 3G and GPS capabilities.
The tablet has just 512MB of RAM and 2GB of storage, but there’s an SD card slot for adding extra space. The iTab7 can handle a wide variety of audio and video formats, which gives it potential as a portable media player. But the 3 hour battery means you’ll have a hard time watching two consecutive movies on an airplane without an external battery pack.
The tablet sells for 179 Euros, or about $243 US.
