The UK-based company Storage Options is introducing the new Scroll Engage tablet which is targeted at budget-conscious consumers. To set itself apart from the other budget tablets available, the Scroll Engage tablet makes use of an aluminum bezel that lends it an elegant look in the face of tablets with plastic bezels.
Inside its chassis, the device runs on a Cortex A8 processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz alongside a Mali 400 dual -core graphics processor. Storage Options has also thrown in a full gigabyte of DDR3 RAM and 8 to 16 GB of built-in memory, which is expandable up to 32 GB with a micro SD card. It also comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Its 8-inch display, an XGA capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels supports multi-touch gestures, boasts of being intuitive and responsive. This tablet is capable of 3D and Full 1080p HD quality video playback through a microHDMI port, it can transmit videos or images to a larger HD-and 3D-compatible monitor or television without losing the HD quality or the three-dimensionality. Storage Options, however, doesn’t include the HDMI cable in the tablet package.
To provide users with many app choices, Storage Options has partnered with SlideME, an Android app store where users can download the apps that they need. However, the company has also pre-loaded the tablet already with some apps that it deems useful for consumers. For instance, the WildTangent app, which provides access to downloadable or online games, is readily available. The 7digital app has moreover been pre-loaded to enable users to enjoy a variety of music on the tablet.
Among the other features offered by the Scroll Engage tablet is the 2 MP rear camera, 0.3 MP front camera, 16-bit G sensor, and built-in speakers. For connectivity, it supports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and includes two micro USB Host Port for connecting a thumb drive or a keyboard to the tablet. It also carries support for a host of video and ebook file types.
The Scroll Engage tablet retails at only £129 in the UK.
