What a lovely name! TA117, it rings in the ears like an oncoming storm of bits. Onkyo Japan has just sent out a press release introducing their newest Android tablet, the TA117, much faster than its crappy ol’ slow TW317 predecessor, this new tablet comes packed with a Tagra 250 Chipset (1Ghz) and a bit of the soon-to-be ancient Android 2.2 Froyo. TA117 has a 10.1″ (1024×600) screen, Bluetooth, microSDHC slot, HDMI, two USB 2.0 ports, WiFi, a 1.3Mpix Camera sensor in 267x173x14.8mm and 800g.
The TA117 comes in two versions, either the 16GB or the 8GB with individual prices for both we’re sure. This tablet will only be available in Japan at first, but of course if you’re savvy enough to head over to somewhere like GeekStuff4U.com tomorrow, you might be lucky enough to be one of the folks able to buy this device on pre-order and have it shipped to your home basically anywhere in the world. That is, of course, if you’re the sort of person who buys without trying or at least seeing a review. Not for me! Take a peek at the full press release below in the gallery.
