As expected, Stream TV Networks has begun showing off a whole slew of new 7 and 10 inch Android tablets at CES. And as expected, most of the new models are slight variations on a theme.
First up, in the 7 inch space we have the eLocity A71, A72, and A73. These models look almost exactly like the eLocity A7 which is is already available for purchase. But the new models have more storage space, a higher resolution screen, and will run Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread instead of Froyo.
Stream TV also says the new models have true multitouch screens, while the original A7 had a capacitive display which offered pinch to zoom, but not much more.
The eLocity A71 has a 1024 x 600 pixel display and 8GB of storage. The A72 has 32GB of storage. And the A73 has a whopping 128GB of storage space.
The company is also showing off a line of 10 inch models, which have high resolution 1366 x 768 pixel capacitive touch screen IPS displays and NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors. These models are designed to run Google Android 3.0 Gingerbread… which means they probably won’t be available until this spring.
JR lists the 128gig version on thier site for $349, The sales person tells me that is correct, can this be possible?
Anything’s possible, but this is highly unlikely. Every other retailer I’ve seen is selling the 4GB model for that price.
Second, as far as I know, eLocity hasn’t begun shipping the 128GB model.
And third, $349 would be barely cover the cost of the SSD, let alone the tablet surrounding it.
The only thing that would make sense is if it’s a model with a hard drive instead of an SSD.
