BeBook is best known for cranking out eBook readers… if the company is known at all. But the company is getting into the tablet space with the BeBook Live, a new Android 2.2 tablet due out in June for $279.
The BeBook Live sports a 7 inch capacitive multitouch display and a 1 GHz Samsung ARM Cortex-A processor. It also features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and a microSD card slot for expansion.
The tablet actually has decent specs for a model saddled with Android 2.2, including a 2MP camera, stereo speakers, a G-sensor, mic, and mini-USB and HDMI ports. The BeBook Live weighs less than a pound and measures a relatively svelte 0.43 inches thick.
Still, I can’t help but hope that by the time the BeBook Live is available on June 21st, that you might be able to find an Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet for a similar price.
