A few weeks ago Hannspree tweeted a picture of the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich HANNSpad. Today they have announced the actual spec and price for the device. The press release is below and quite a few things stand out from it.
Key points for the new HANNSpad are:
– It only costs £99.99
– 7″ LED backlight with 800×480 resolution (16:10)
– Leather-feel back casing
It looks like it could be quite nice, although the lack of the Google Play Store and only 512MB of RAM might make the HANNSpad a little slow and difficult to get apps. Hannspree seem to have installed a variety of third party markets to supply apps. Hopefully we will get out hands on one soon.
The previous HANNSpad was quite a hit with the Android Community as it was quite hackable, whether this new one will be such a hit we will see.
