With PC sales falling, German computer manufacturer Medion are taking a stab at breaking into the Android tablet market with their new Lifetab E10310 slate.
A 10.1-inch device with a 1280 x 800 resolution display, it’s running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and comes with full Google accreditation and pre-installed Google apps.
There’s also a handful of premium apps (somewhat showing Medion’s desire to court business users), with Kaspersky Tablet Security and Documents To Go sitting next to the LIFETAB Media player app and self-explanatory Drawing Pad.
Running off a 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex A9 dual core processor, it has 16GB of internal storage (expandable with microSD cards) and 1GB of RAM. 6 hours of battery life is quoted.
Measuring 260.7 x 172 x 12.1 mm and weighing 594g, the tablet includes Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as housing a microHDMI output for pushing the tablet’s apps onto a big screen. Should you be mad enough to want to use them, there’s a 2MP camera on the rear and a standard 0.3MP front facing camera for video calling.
Available now from ASDA, it’s reasonably priced for a 10-inch tablet at £167.
