Vodaphone tablet clears the FCC

A tablet from Vodaphone showed up on the FCC website today.It's based on a 7" LCD screen (800x480) and it comes with 1GB Flash, a SD card slot, USB Host, a stylus, speakers, a 2MP camera, and WCDMA network support.It doesn't appear to have been tested for Wifi. It's not clear what the OS is, but I'm going to guess Android. But this is a closed device so it doesn't really matter.

Do you see the large white button on the side of the screen? It's a scroll button (kinda like a trackball). I don't know why we don't see it more.

I've looked over the manual, and Vodaphone seem to be planning to push this as a phone, not a tablet. There's instructions on how do do voice and video calls, which rather odd. I didn't find a microphone.

No word yet on price or release date.

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."
