Startup Company Makes 65-inch Tablet-powered Jumbo Tablet
Turkish based company Ardic Technology seeks to start the production of their 65-inch Android tablet. The “monster tablet” is run by a 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet. Its prototype includes a 65-inch display, docking equipment for the smaller tablet, and two touch sensors attached which support simple swiping, zooming, and pinching hand movements. The setup also supports 1080p Full HD video playback.
The tablet is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, with 1 GB RAM, 16 GB flash memory, dual camera-system, HDMI port, USB, microSD port, and 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.
According to Engadget, Ardic is interested in manufacturing the device and aims to produce it in a variety of sizes. It also plans to create versions powered by other handheld devices such as smartphones. More touch inputs will be placed to support full multitouch gestures.
Tasks done in an Android tablet can be performed with the monster tablet as well. This includes surfing the net, movie viewing, gaming, viewing presentation files, downloading applications from the Android Market, and so on.
Ardic Technology is reportedly negotiating with educational institutions and commercial companies with the offer of a more cost efficient alternative to smartboards.
This jumbo tablet does like like a better replacement for chalkboards, white boards, and smartboards, right?
