SmartQ recently announced a very interesting tablet, the U7. It is the first tablet to use projection technology, specifically DLP Pico handheld projection technology from Texas Instruments. The projected image can be up to 50″, which is should be good enough for most presentations and multimedia.
Now, pricing for the tablet’s two versions has been revealed. The base model, which comes with an OMAP4430 processor running at 1Ghz, and 8GB storage, will be $315USD. The second version has a better processor, OMAP4460 @ 1.5Ghz, and 16Gb storage. The extra features bring the price up to about $400USD. Both units have a 7″, 1024 x 600 IPS screen, 5-point touch, and 1GB ram. With Jelly Bean operating system, these tablets are a very unique entry into a crowded market.
