Onkyo launches six new Android tablets in Japan

Onkyo's six new Android tablets

We know Onkyo for its music gear in the United States. But since it is a consumer electronics company, it has often wandered to different dimensions in the same business, such as PCs and tablets. But has not been successful in its trip. But the company has decided to make another trip to the tablets dimension starting on the 8th of March. The payload you ask? Well, six new Android tablets.

Yes, the company has announced six new Android tablets under the brand name of SlatlePads. There are variants starting with a screen size of 7 inches and up to 10.1 inches, which include two 7 inch tablets, one 8 inch tablet, one 10.1 inch tablet, and two 9.7 inch tablets.

The features vary between these tablets, and the top end model of the company’s new line of tablets is not really a top end model in the actual tablet world. At the bottom, we have a 7 inch tablet with a 1.2 GHz Cortex 8 processor bundled with 512 MB of RAM. The 7 inch display has  a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and the user gets a misery 4 GB of storage space. Also, the tablet runs on Android 4.0, also known as the Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The rest of the line has an okay kind of spec sheet with a 1.6 GHz Cortex A9 processor, 1 GB RAM, and the fairly new Android 4.1, also known as Android Jelly Bean. The lower end model will be selling for 10,480 yen (around $114) and the higher end model which comes with a 9.8 inch display with a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels will come with a price tag of 28,800 yen (approx. $313), which is still good.

As usual, these tablets will probably not be coming to the United States, but if you want one, you will have to pay a little bit extra for your tablet’s air tickets.
