Olivetti to Release 2nd-Generation Android Honeycomb Tablet
Olivetti pleasured Italy with its first Android tablet, the OliPad 100, a few months ago. Just last week, Olivetti announced that Italy will have a taste of its first upgraded Android tablet–the OliPad 110.
Its brand name etched deeply into the minds of many as the company that makes sturdy and durable typewriters, Olivetti is upping the ante for its first OliPad by bringing out a better one, with Android 3.1 Honeycomb and a display resolution of 1280×800, which is higher than its predecessor.
The company has yet to reveal official details on the OliPad 110’s price and availability. However, Notebook Italia, believes the tablet will start appearing in Italian stores some time in July for about EUR400, about EUR100 price difference from the first-generation OliPad 100, whose retail price has been slashed down to about EUR300.
The newcomer has a 10.1-inch WXGA touchscreen display. Its earlier sibling only had a WSVGA (1024×600) display. The two cameras have also been upped to 2 megapixels and 5 megapixels (front and rear, respectively).
Notebook Italia mentions that the upcoming OliPad 110 is also leaner and thinner than the previous slate. It appears to have lost some weight, too. The earlier OliPad weighed 708 grams, but the newer one weighs 600 grams.
Apart from the aforementioned differences, the OliPad 110’s other specs are pretty much alike the OliPad 100. Both are fueled by dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chips (1 GHz), have 16 gigabytes of inbuilt storage, carries several peripheral ports (audio, mini-USB, micro-HDMI, microSD flash card reader), and supports Bluetooth, 3G, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Do I hear anyone here saying “Dammi questo” for this molto potente tablet?
