As the tablet market continues to flourish, devices are popping up in droves from a slew of different companies that want in on the action. This includes AOC and eLocity, both of which recently announced upcoming tablets from their respective companies.
AOC, better known for its LCD/LED monitors and HDTVs, will be releasing the Breeze, an 8-inch, touchscreen tablet that will run Google’s Android OS 2.1. Powered by a Rockchip processor and weighing in at 1.1 pounds, it will feature Wi-Fi connectivity, a USB 2.0 port, a MicroSD card reader, and 4 GB of internal memory. AOC has promised a sub-$200 price point on the Breeze, which will be showcased at this week’s CES in Las Vegas.
eLocity will be launching the A10 line of 10-inch tablets, which will also run the Android OS, except it will be the upcoming 3.0 version, aka Honeycomb. As such, the tablets, among their other features, will be Flash-enabled. The A10 tablets will come equipped with NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processors, as well as front-facing cameras, microSD card slots, and HDMI outputs. The different models allow for varying price points, depending on user preferences. The A10 line, which will also be previewed at CES, will be available for pre-order starting on January 17.
