ICE Smart 5″ Android tablet now shipping from JR.com

The first Android tablet from Latte Communication has shown up on JR.com, the NYC based gadget retailer.

The ICE Smart is a 5" (800x480) handheld running Android v2.3 on an 800MHz CPU. It has 8GB Flash, microSD card slot, Wifi, microphone, speakers, and a g-sensor. This tablet also has HDMI out, USB Host, and it promises 1080p video. It also promises decent format support for audio and video: MP3, WAV, WMA, ASF, APE, FLAC, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, WMV, MP4, RMVB, FLV, MKV.

The touchscreen is described as a dual touch resistive. I'm not quite sure what that means but it is interesting. I'll see if I can get Mike Cane (who tipped me to the tablet) to go fondle it.

Given the lack of a recognizable brand name, it has pretty decent specs.This tablet isn't much to look at but think about how it compares to last year. Most budget tablets, to varying degrees, were  junk. This one at least runs a decent version of Android and comes with certain minimum of apps.

You can buy the ICE Smart from JR.com or direct from Latte Communication for $190.

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."
