The Next3 Android tablet reappears as the Prestigio Multipad

Prestigio announced a new Android tablet last week, and I swear that it looks the same as the Next3.

The Prestigio PMP3084B is based on an 8.4" (800x600) screen, and it runs Android v2.1 on a 700MHz Rockchip CPU. It has 4GB Flash, a SD card slot, Wifi, and an accelerometer. Format support includes:

  • eBook Formats EPUB, PDF (DRM), TXT, FB2
  • Audio Formats MP 3, AAC, WAV, OGG, WMA, LAC, APE
  • Video Formats A VI, 3GP, MP4, RM, RMVB, FLV, MKV, MOV

The specs might not look like much, but I think it will be a cheap but decent Android  tablet. I'm not so interested in it as an ereader, though,  because none of the Android reading apps are designed to work well on such a large screen. But PDFs should be very good.

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."

    WUT? Aldiko is pre-installed on the Archos 7″ & 10″ tablets and works just fine. Even prior to 2.0, it was tested on a 10″ screen and worked.
