Hannspree Presents A 10.1-inch Android Tablet

More Android tablets have been prelaunched ahead of the IFA consumer show in Germany next week, after Viewsonic, it's another display specialist, Hannspree who is introducing a rather elegant tablet.

The device, which has yet to be named, apparently comes with the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a dual core ARM model based on the Cortex A9 and clocked at 1GHz, together with 512MB DDR2 memory.

There's also 16GB worth of onboard memory with the option to add another 32GB via the microSD card slot. Other features include a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen that can display 1024x600 pixels (although we'd prefer 1366x768 pixels), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a USB and HDMI ports, a 3500 mAh battery which should allow the Hannspree tablet to last for eight hours.

It will be able to run full HD as well as Flash content due to the onboard hardware acceleration provided by Nvidia's GPU.

More importantly though, it will cost around £330, comes with Android 2.2 (Froyo, not Eclair), weighs 790 grams and measures less than 13.9mm thick - that's even thinner than some smartphones out there.

Hannspree has not said when it will be available but we expect dozens of models to be finally available towards Christmas.
