The SmartQ T7 is a 7 inch tablet that for some reason looks to me more like an eBook reader than a typical slate computer. But with a price tag of just $249 for the WiFi model or $289 for a 3G capable unit, it’s not a bad looking machine. Chippy from CarryPad recently snagged a review unit, and he’s posted an unboxing video and some first impressions.
The tablet features an 800 x 600 pixel resistive touchscreen display, WiFi, and either Bluetooth or 3G — but not both. The device runs Google Android 2.1 and has a 720MHz TCC8902 processor. It has 256MB of memory.
Chippy’s demo unit shipped with Google’s app suite including Gmail, Google Calendar, and other apps, as well as the Android Market. But he notes that device also appears to have been rooted, so it’s not clear if this is final production software or not.
You can check out Chippy’s video after the break, or find more photos and other details at the Carrypad product page for the SmartQ T7.
The tablet is available for purchase from HotMID.
