PocketBook International has unveiled a new 7 inch Android tablet cleverly called the PocketBook A 7. It features a 1024 x 600 pixel color display, a 1 GHz TI OMAP 3621 processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage and runs Google Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread.

PocketBook A 7

The company typically produces eReaders, and the A 7 is positioned as a “multimedia reader.” It includes eBook software with support for EPUB,PDF, FB2, TXZT, HTML, DOC, and other file formats. It also supports Adobe DRM.

At first glance the PocketBook A 7 might look a lot like other 7 inch Android-powered eReaders including the Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet or Amazon Kindle Fire. But it does have a few features which help set it apart, including:

  • Google Android Market support
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • microSDHC card slot

On the other hand, the B&N and Amazon tablets both have faster 1 GHz TI OMAP 4 dual core processors.

The PocketBook A 7 has a capacitive touch panel with support for multitouch input, a headphone jack and stereo speakers, and support for MP3, WAV, AVI, MKV, and MP4 media files. It has a white plastic case and weighs 0.9 pounds.

Unfortunately there’s still no word on the price or release date.

  1. Great Tablet…  Too bad they’re about a year late if that’s what they’re releasing.
