You might recall that I've covered Infibeam's ereader, the Pi, and that Infibeam also has a line of cellphones. Well, Infibeam has just posted the product page for the Phi, their new 7" tablet. It won't ship until 30 July, but they are taking pre-orders for 14,999Rs.
The specs are run of the mill, but the battery life seems a little short:
- 600 MHZ CPU (Android)
- 256MB RAM
- 7" 800x480 screen
- 8GB Flash
- microSDHC card slot (up to 32GB supported)
- weight: 332 g
- 5 hours battery life
Curiously enough, the WinCE version of the Phi has an 800MHz CPU and weighs about 60g more. This is a good sign that they didn't just slap 2 OSes on the same hardware. That's reassuring, IMO. I've found that whenever a company puts 2 OS versions on 1 set of budget hardware at least 1 OS is only marginally useful.
