Meet The TazPad : The First NFC Android Tablet

TazPad, the first Android tablet equipped with near field communication technology, will be launched at CeBIT 2011 in Hannover.

The device comes with a 7-inch colour capacitive touchscreen with a SD card reader, HDMI output, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, a camera, GPS and a built in accelerometer.

Taztag, the French company behind the tablet, says that it is unique on the market as it includes a biometric authentication option which makes it safer than most.

Other hardware specifications haven't yet been revealed; we don't know what processor and GPU the tablet will be running, the amount of onboard RAM and the storage capacity.

What we do know is that the tablet will run Honeycomb which means that the tablet should have at least a 1024x600 pixels screen resolution if not more.

The company expects the device to be used primarily amongst integrators and service providers who can customise it to their clients' requirements by developing contactless applications.

The tablet is expected to be launched in the second quarter of 2011. The price and availability across Europe have yet to be announced.
