Kobo has officially announced its Vox Android tablet.
Despite a Canadian retailer accidentally posting the tablet on its website last week, Kobo has just confirmed that the slate is currently available on its website, though consumers will have to wait until Oct. 28 for the device to ship.
The Vox tablet will sport a 7-inch, 1024 x 600 AFFS+ display with multi-touch capabilities. Powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Kobo’s latest slate will pack an 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Equipped with a 7-hour battery, according to the company, the tablet will ship with 8 gigs of internal memory with support for up to 32GB of SD storage. The device will come pre-loaded with a selection of apps, as well as Android Market, and will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, built-in speaker and Wi-Fi support.
The Vox tablet by Kobo will cost $200 and will also be available at Best Buy and Fry’s Electronics stores in the U.S.
