Infibeam announces the Phi – 7″ tablet running Android, WinCE

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
  • accelerometer
  • microphone

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.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

    I have used Infibeam’s service just two days back. I ordered a book online and got it within 24 hours. It is too good. I have experienced services of other bookstores but never got such a quick delivery. So congratulations and keep it up.
