You know how some products just seem like they’re taking forever to hit the market because it’s been so long since we first heard about them, and other products really are taking forever… because they keep missing their estimated ship dates. Yeah, it looks like the Stream TV eLocity A7 tablet is falling into the latter category.
The 7 inch Android tablet features an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core chip, n 800 x 480 pixel capacitive multitouch display, an accelerometer, and USB and HDMI ports. It can handle 1080p HD video output, runs Google Android 2.2, and is supposed to sell for $399.
Unfortunately the company promised in August that the tablet would be available the following month. September came and went. So did October. Now that November is almost over, Netbook News discovered that customers who have placed orders are finding that the ship dates have been pushed back to December.
I think it’s still too early to call the eLocity A7 vaporware. At this point, I think it’s just delayed… but sometimes its better not to give shipping estimates than to provide them and miss them.
