We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve said that non-iPads are too highly priced. How the hell can you expect to compete with the iPad on a large scale with a tablet that costs the same or more?
The makers of the AndyPad clearly agree with our thinking. We recently heard that they’re working on two tablets, and the standard AndyPad costs £129 - less than a third of the price of the 16GB iPad 2.
Both AndyPads will run Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), with Wi-Fi support, a 3D GPU, 1.2GHz processor and 1080p HDMI.
The standard AndyPad weighs in with 8GB on-board storage, a front camera, and a resistive 7in display (800 x 480). Again, it’s £129.
The AndyPad Pro has 16GB of storage, a front and rear camera, 7in capacitive display (1,024 x 600), and Bluetooth connectivity. It’ll be £179.
Only 37 days till launch. We make that… August 31.
