Well would you look at that, a group of fellas over in Italy have their hands on an Olivetti OliPad 100, an 10-inch Android tablet running Android 2.2 Froyo with a slightly unique physical build. This isn’t exactly an iPad killer by any stretch of the imagination, but it is interesting to see the different iterations of tablets coming out on this 2011 wave to be sure. This tablet has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution on it’s multi-touch display and a sassy ARM Corex A9 dual-core processor running the engine.
There’s a lovely little welcome in the center top of the front of this tablet, it’s got Wifi and Bluetooth, a 3G modem, and can connect to other devices via USB and SD card. Have a peek at the unboxing video here, and note the thickness and unique Olivetti overlay on Android. Doesn’t look half bad!
They mention “full HD” which could mean anything, to be honest, and SW eReading, and a large set of availability in flexibility features, working with you for all your “business needs.” We’re always on the lookout for tablets that are business oriented, especially since it really does seem, no matter what they say, that the mainstream tablets and smartphones of today are definitely busting at the seams with fun apps and games. Is this Italy’s tablet BlackBerry?
This tablet is said to cost 394 € (VAT included) and will have an official docking station available for purchase as well.
