A company called Epesitec has introduced two new Android tablets. That’s not surprising. Pretty much every company on the face of the earth has an Android tablet to sell these days. What makes the new Epesitec tablets stand out is the company’s claim that it’s offering the cheapest tablet with a 1 GHz processor and a capacitive touchscreen.
That might kind of be true. The Epesitec E515 tablet features a 1.2 Ghz Freescale processor with PowerVR Series5 graphics and a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen display. The WiFi-only model will sell for $189.
Epesitec will also offer a 3G capable model called the E516 which will run $249. Both tablets have 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth, and front and rear cameras — as well as a USB port and TV output. They’re both due out on November 1st.
Personally, I’d probably rather pay the extra $10 to get a tablet from a more established company. The Lenovo tablet that comes with GPS and the Android Market, or the Amazon tablet which will feature tight integration with the retailer’s audio, video, ebook, and app stores.
