The HomeSurf 8, a tablet from the UK based consumer electronics company Binatone, just sjhowed up on the FCC website today.It's based on an 8" (800x600) screen and runs an unspecified version of Android (my guess is 2.0) Th einternal photos were too fuzzy for me to make out any details, so all I have to go on is the product page and external photos. It has Wifi, a stylus, a microSD card slot, and 2GB Flash. As you can see from the lead picture, the HomeSurf 8 ships with a cradle. It's just a charging station, unfortunately.
I'd like to tell you what it's selling for in the UK, but it's not carried by any of Binatone's retail partners. I don't know when it will be released.

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."
