As mentioned a couple of times in the past, vendors sometimes do the strangest things just to stand out from a market full of people copying each other and doing the same things. One very recent exemplar of this is the Hannspree Hannspad SN14t71, which is probably the largest portable Android tablet you’ve so far laid eyes on, though the aspect of portability is, at this point, almost debatable.
This question of portability is due to the fact that, unlike the common 10.1-inch Android tablets today, or even the rumored 12.2-inch Samsung Galaxy Note on the way, this pushes the boundaries further with a whooping 13.3-inch screen. But for all the size-boasting, the display only supports a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, just enough for 720p viewing.
Unfortunately, things go slightly downhill from there. This tablet is big on the outside but somewhat mediocre inside. It is powered by a 1.6 GHz quad-core ARM processor, paired with 1 GB of RAM. Internal storage is limited to 16 GB, but, luckily, a microSD slot is available. It has a measly 2 megapixel rear camera, though you won’t probably want to be caught snapping up photos using this tablet anyway. It does make up for the low specs with a large 4000 mAh battery, though battery life is promised to last at least 5 hours only. It does run a somewhat up-to-date Android 4.2, so at least not everything is bad.
Things go even lower, but this time for the better. For all its size and specs, the Hannspree Hannspad SN14t71 will only set you back 199 GBP, which translates to around $320 across the ocean. Not bad for a budget tablet of this size, presuming, of course, you have a reason to get one.
