Vodaphone tablet clears the FCC

A tablet from Vodaphone showed up on the FCC website today.It's based on a 7" LCD screen (800x480) and it comes with 1GB Flash, a SD card slot, USB Host, a stylus, speakers, a 2MP camera, and WCDMA network support.It doesn't appear to have been tested for Wifi. It's not clear what the OS is, but I'm going to guess Android. But this is a closed device so it doesn't really matter. Do you see the large white button on the side of the screen? It's a scroll button (kinda like a trackball). I don't know why we don't see it more.

I've looked over the manual, and Vodaphone seem to be planning to push this as a phone, not a tablet. There's instructions on how do do voice and video calls, which rather odd. I didn't find a microphone.

No word yet on price or release date.
