Pocketbook A7 Leaked

A few months ago Pocketbook unveiled the A10, their new 10" Gingerbread tablet, and right about that time I also heard about another tablet which never did make the light of day. It's the A7, and it's a smaller cousin to the A10. Earlier today a photo leaked and now I can finally show you what it looks like.

Unfortunately, this image all I have. Pocketbook hasn't announced this tablet anywhere. But I have heard that it has a 7" screen, and is using the same CPU as the A10. I've been told that it's also running Android v2.3 Gingerbread, just like the A10. Based on the photo, I'd say that this tablet doesn't have a camera, but i won't make a guess about the screen resolution or other details.

Update: I now have confirmation that it is a smaller version of then A10. Here are some of the specs

  • 7 "TFT screen (resolution 1024x600)
  • dimensions: 207mm x 131mm x 15mm
  • weight: about 400 grams
  • TI OMAP 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Flash storage

On a related note, this tablet wasn't the actual leak. What happened was that a promo shot for Pocketbook's new ebookstore, Obreey, was somehow posted online, and that's where I got the shot above.

Pocketbook is in the early stages of launching a new brand. It looks like they will be remodeling their stores in the Ukraine and Russia and replacing the existing BookLand brand with Obreey. They might also  plan to release their ereader under the new brand, but I'm not sure. Details are still scarce.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. 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."

  1. Isn’t this the same tablet that Coby will be putting out next month in their next wave of tablets? The buttons look familiar.
