We were at CES in Vegas this year when we took a long tour of the eLocity booth and got hands on with all of the new technology coming out this year! The big news is their series of 10 inch and 7 inch tablet computers to come out in February and March of 2011 with some interesting devices coming later on in the year.
February 2011 Release
The most pressing news is the release of the A10 series of 10 inch tablet computers. When we were at CES there were over 7 versions of the A10 in development! The big difference between them was their size of internal memory. They ranged from 4 GB with the A10.1 to 256 GB with the A10.7. It seems for the final production models they are going with only four options. A10 4GB model will sell for 9, while there will be a 32GB option for 9.99 and a 64GB version for 9.99.
Lets take a look at the final hardware specs for the A10 line of eLocity tablets. They will have an Nvidia Tegra 2 T250 processor that is around 1GHZ with 1MB of L2 Cache. It will be coming out of the gates with Android 2.2, but the reps told us Honeycomb would be provided with an over the air update. There is 512 MB of RAM packed into the device and you will have a resolution of 1366×768 with the 10.1 inch tablet.
Other features include stereo speakers, 3 MP front facing camera, WIFI, 3G, USB, Mini USB, HDMI, a three access accelerometer and an ambient light sensor.
The A10 when we saw it looked very refined and polished and are eagerly awaiting to get our hands on one. Pre-orders are going to start Febuary 15th with shipping to follow within a few weeks.
