Qooq Launches new 10″ Kitchen Tablet

1540-1With a name like Qooq, you can tell that this French tablet maker doesn't take itself too seriously. But the same can't be said for their tablets, because Qooq just announced a new based on last year's Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU.

The Qooq V3 runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat on a Tegra 4 CPU with 1GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. It has 2 cameras (5MP and 1.2MP) Wifi, Bluetooth.

This tablet sports a 10" display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800. It also has a microSD card slot and a microHDMI port. Weighing in at around 700 grams, it measures 290 mm by 210 mm by 11.5 mm and somehow manages to fit in a 5.8Ah battery.


All in all this is not a bad tablet, although I do wish it had more RAM for the price. The Tegra 4 CPU, on the other hand, may not be Nvidia's most powerful chip but it's still far more powerful than you'll need in the kitchen.

This tablet retails for 399 euros on fnac.com. That's about $506, which is a little steep for this blogger but not entirely unreasonable. This tablet does ship with Qooq's cookbooks and software, after all, so it could well be worth buying if you cook a lot.

In any case, this is a far better tablet than the last kitchen tablet I covered on this blog. That sad excuse for a cooking tablet was made by Archos, and it lacked Bluetooth and front-facing speakers. The new Qooq tablet might not have front-facing speakers either but you can pair with Bluetooth speakers.
