Polaroid may still be a name associated with photography for most of us, but it's continuing its reinvention as a mobile gadget maker, and has just announced a trio of tablets ahead of CES 2014.
Titled the Q7, Q8 and Q10, they follow on from last year's M-branded budget tablet line but with improved performance and the relative novelty of Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
As you'd expect, the three devices differ in terms of screen size, with choices of a 7in, 8in and 10in display. We're told there won't be too much else separating the trio in terms of specs, though aside from the promise of a “super-fast” quad-core processor we're not given any details to go on.
What company president and CEO Scott W Hardy is saying is that the Q Series is aimed at movie and gaming fans (though not photo fundis interestingly enough).
As such they're sure to be equipped with HDMI outputs (obviously) and front-mounted speakers (stereo, hopefully) for better audio performance. As for the cameras, Polaroid only says they're there – both on the front and round the back, but no more details are given.
So not much by way of information so far from Polaroid, but the promise of Android 4.4 will at least ensure our attention when the full announcement comes next week. That and the promise of a price range from $129 to $179, though that suggests some fairly, ahem, gentle specs once the full picture is revealed.
