As promised, Skytex has started taking orders for the Skypad ALpha 2. It’s an Android tablet with a 7 inch display, a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, and Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system. It has a 5-point multitouch display, support for 1080p HD and 3D video, and HDMI output.
Those features are almost enough to make me overlook the lose resolution, 800 x 480 pixel display. But at a time when many 4-inch phones have higher resolution displays, it’s tough to justify spending money on a 7 inch tablet with a low-res screen.
The good news is that Skytex is running a promotion through December 25th which knocks $50 off the tablet’s normal $219 price tag.
You can pick one up for $169 if you use the coupon code SPA250 at the Skytex web store.
