NEC Smartia tablet is consumer version of Cloud Communicator [Video]

NEC's Cloud Communicator tablet has jumped over to the company's consumer division, rebranded as the NEC Smartia and set to go on sale in Japan from December 6.

There's also GPS, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a 3-megapixel webcam. NEC also thrown on their own app store, Andronavi.

Hardware details on the Stealth V are scant, but the approval listing [pdf link] does confirm that it has a 4.3-inch WVGA AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel camera. There's also WiFi b/g/n and a microSD card slot. Verizon's Galaxy S handset, the Fascinate, is the SCH-i500, so it's not too great a leap to presume that this is the successor to that device.
