But there was one other interesting detail in the press release. Pandigital mentioned a 4th Android tablet which was going to ship next month. I now have confirmation from Pandigital that the 8″ Supernova tablet that cleared the FCC last week is indeed the 4th tablet.
It’s basically the same tablet as the 7″ Nova, only it has an 8″ screen. The user manual is visible on the FCC paperwork, so I have the full specs:
- Android v2.3
- 8″(600×800) capacitive screen
- 4GB Flash storage
- microSD card slot
- 2 cameras (3MP & 0.3MP)
- HDMI out
- USB Host
- speaker and a microphone
The specs aren’t all that amazing, but this tablet could present an interesting research opportunity. I’m going to see if I can put the Nova next to the SuperNova and use them both. The screens are only slightly different in size, and I wonder how that extra inch will affect usability.
