The new compact tablet comes in two versions, according to liliputing - a $99 Tegra 2-powered model with 4GB of on-board storage; but the new $139 version is raising interest with its 16GB of storage, and more importantly, its quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.
Both come with a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen panel with 800×480-pixel resolution. The Tegra 2 model gets 512MB of RAM while the new Tegra 3 offering gets 1GB.
Both have a 2MP rotating camera on the side with up to 720p HD (1280×720-pixels) video recording.
While the cheaper model gets Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), the newer model runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
They’re both surprisingly well featured when it comes to wireless connectivity with both units receiving 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 support.
Battery capacity is arguably a little low for tablets of this size with 2350mAh Lithium-ion unit in the cheaper model and a 2500mAh battery in the Tegra 3 option, but there’s no word on battery life.
Both have MicroSD card support and built-in microphone.
You can pick up the 16GB/Tegra 3 version from Best Buy for $139.
