Hot on the heels of ARCHOS 7 Home Tablet’s announcement, the Kogan Pad is purportedly going to be $200 and runs Android, Linux, and Windows (although the latter will be dropped due to price). Kogan is the same company whose Agora Android smartphone is still vaporware.
- 800 x 480 Touch Capacitive LCD (the prototype had resistive)
- ARM 600MHz processor
- 512Mb RAM
- 2Gb Memory
- HDMI Output
The unnamed Pad is supposedly able to run full HD video, and Kogan claims that his company could immediately release it if it wanted to. Given that the $179 Home Tablet has virtually identical hardware, I would rather invest in a device from a well known company like ARCHOS.
