Hannspree’s SN10T1 Tablet [HANDS ON]

April 15, 2011

Chris Davies over at Slashgear was able to get a hands on with the Hannspree SN10T1 Tablet and the first impression is, you get what you pay for. Because it's screen resolution falls short of the 1200x800 display, it can't incorporate Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), Hanspree was forced to settle for Android 2.2 (Froyo). In addition, it comes without the Android Marketplace installed because Hanspree didn't provide all the phone functionality that's required for the official Android Marketplace. So instead, it has a third party app store called Android PITs App Center. Still, there's a lot under the hood to consider.

The SN10T1 (can't they come up with a cool name like XOOM?) does have NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor though, and it has a 10.1 inch screen with a 1024x600 inch touchscreen. Just falling short of the resolution required for Honeycomb. But it also has a lower price tag, too, of around $500 (€349). Not bad for a Tegra 2 tablet.

It's design is thick and robust, but it's also mostly plastic with no metal case, meaning it could be easily cracked, if dropped. It's WiFi only, has Flash player support, Bluetooth, HDMI, microSD cards, and a "split layout" virtual keyboard. Sadly, no cameras, so no video chat. And while it doesn't come with Honeycomb, Hanspree has placed a custom UI known as TapTap that overlays Froyo and provides a usable interface. Hanspree has it earmarked for US release in Q3 of 2011, and should be able to take advantage of a budget minded tablet niche.

    No Android Market? No sale here! For me that is the entire draw of Android beside the fact that it is “open”. Many of the apps I use on a daily basis are not available outside of the Market. I’m looking at getting an Acer Iconia Tab a500

    How is this any better than a ViewSonic GTablet, that also has Tegra2, a 1024X600 display and the awful TapNTap interface? The Gtablet’s been selling for $300 lately. Why in the world would I spend $500 on this vs. $400 for an Asus Transformer with an IPS screen?

    Wow TapTap has come a long way since I first saw it on the gtab. I’ll probably still grab an Asus Transformer or Acer A100 even though they’ll be similarly priced(considering vat).

    2.2, no Android Market, no cameras and cheap construction, sign me up /sarcasm. By the time Q3 rolls around this will surely be really really out of date and the better tablets would have lowered their prices (hopefully).
