The CrunchPad is dead. The Apple tablet is probably just a fantasy. Are all the coolest slates going to evaporate into vaporware? Let’s hope not, because there’s another to get excited about: the Webstation Android tablet. Yes, while everybody is waiting for baited breath of the unconfirmed Apple Tablet and thinking whether the Crunchpad may or may not have stumbled, a company called Camangi has already gone ahead and created the WebStation. Product Summary:
As the name suggests, the “WebStation” is designed to surf the web. With built-in Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) and 3G USB dongle support (including 3G above), you will be able to stay connected to the Internet and enjoy a smooth and fast web browsing experience. With 3G connection, you can enjoy connecting to the Internet wherever you go, whether you find a Wi-Fi hotpot or not. Unlike most electronic devices, there are no overly complicate functions or navigation process.
Since the OS is Android 1.5, there’s also the App Market for downloading new software, but you’ll get a browser, email client and media player as standard. At only 13.75 ounces, Camangi WebStation is less than 1/3 of Netbook’s average weight. And at only 1/2 inch thin, you’ll find Camangi WebStation perfect in your hands. It has a 7-inch 16m color LCD resistive touch screen running at 800 x 480, and a 4,000mAh battery good for up to 4 days standby (with GPS and WiFi shut off) or 4-5hrs active use.
It’s got what you’d expect in it. Web, email, ebook, digital picture frame, etc. It’s even got its own market.
The screen being resistive instead of capacitive, and application memory being limited to 256 megabytes.
If you’re looking for a portable device that can perform your modern day demands on the go, Camangi WebStation is just the right gadget for you.
