OGT Mobile is expected to launch a thin and light Android tablet soon. The company first showed a picture of the little guy in February, but now the folks at Android Central have posted a brief video and some actual specs.

Here’s what we know so far. The tablet will reportedly weigh just 1.2 pounds and measure just 7mm thick. That’s about 0.28 inches. The Apple iPad 2, by comparison, measures about 8.8mm or 0.34 inches thick.

The tablet will have a 1 GHz processor, 16GB to 32GB of storage, and front and rear cameras. The screen will have a pixel density of 188 ppi, which means it will be sharper than the Motorola XOOM or Apple iPad.

Unfortunately there’s still no word on which 1 GHz processor the tablet will have. There’s also no information about what version of Android it will run or how much the OGT Mobile tablet will cost.

You can check out the video after the break.

  1. I call bogus….apparently folks post stories without doing the LEAST bit of research about a company…..

      1. How about you start with a “whois” on the domain, dude. And see where it leads you ?

        Don’t feel bad….you, CrunchGear, Android Central, and Phandroid have all run with the news posting info, w/o seeing if this isn’t just __another__ “Augen”. <- That was a HUGE A__ hint. It's not Augen, but if the shoe fits.

        1. Well to be fair… the Augen GenTouch78 may be a crappy tablet, but it’s a real device. I’m still not sure exactly what you’re calling “bogus” on here. The domain was registered last year, so sure it’s a new company. But that doesn’t make it bogus either.

          The iffiest thing is definitely the fact that the given address corresponds to what appears to be a Salon in Miami… but that might just be the address of the guy who registered the domain.

          I wasn’t really expecting to find a factory address. Odds are this thing is being manufactured in Taiwan or China just like most other tablets, and OGT Mobile may just be a distributor like Augen, Stream TV Networks (eLocity A7 tablet), or many others. It doesn’t mean the product’s not real.

          I’m not trying to be difficult. I’m just trying to understand why you’re being skeptical. If I see anything to indicate this product isn’t real I’d be happy to update the post, but I’m just not seeing it.

          1. Dude…believe what you want. Owning a GenTouch, I can tell you, it’s far from what the American public would consider a real device. That being said, even Augen had “real” offices, where things were registered to.

            And given the track record of some companies of late coming out of Miami ( Remember Psystar ? The Apple Cloner run out of fictional office within a freight forwarding company that didn’t even have offices. ). I’d rather err on the side of caution until something more substantial is demonstrated.

            Remember also that Augen has had that same “news” page of the whole “espress and latte” line of Android tablets for MONTHS. And while we saw 1 unit at CES, I don’t remember seeing any pictures of it actually turned on and running. So even companies with “real warehouses” ( if you can call Augen’s office that ) put out bogus press releases.

            Oh, and for the record….of COURSE it’s probably some Shenzen, Guangdong manufacturered unit. It looks like a cross between a Zpad and a Viewsonic 10s ( kinda sorta ). It’s obviously sitting on a dock that looks suspiciously like the sort Malata put out, the only thing that’s throwing off identification is that port that looks like a headphone jack on the top of it, next to the volume rockers. Odd place to put a headphone jack. Odd place for ANY jack.

            In this day and age, people have to be a bit more skeptical Brad. Do what you like, I’m just saying the thing is bogus until someone puts up some further information. Too many companies pulling “Duke Nukem’s” with their announcements these days. Yes it’s here, not it’s not. Yes it’s coming, maybe it won’t.

            And yeah, registering your company’s website where your product is going to “shakes the industry” at the street of a Unisex hair salon is a really savvy business decision. C’mon, they didn’t even think of anonymizing their domain, which most company’s today do as a matter of course. It costs what ? A few dollars a year ?
            Pfft!

          2. Well, considering I went to a Walmart today that street view still shows as an out of business bank. I can say a quick Internet check isn’t absolutely conclusive but it is suspicious.

          3. Well. I decided to make the schlep and take a look for myself after work. Drove past it. It’s there just like in the Steet View picture….bah.

  2. Thin and light is great, but from that video it looks like a 7″ display or am I wrong?
