The tablet market is steadily growing, one device at a time, and it seems that companies are already struggling when it comes to hardware variety, as is shown by the latest device from Mouse Computer, a tablet more or less similar, hardware-wise, to the Interpad from E-Noa
After the Apple iPad showed everyone that tablets have a bright future ahead of them, the various PC makers in the world resolved to join this movement as well.
As such, all of them tried to trump the iPad in one way or another, either though support for Flash, a wider feature set of just through sheer performance thanks to better hardware, if applicable.
As such, the NVIDIA Tegra 2 system-on-chip has become one of the primary choices for a platform, thanks to its support fro advanced multimedia playback, among other things.
Now, Mouse Computer has reportedly almost completed the LuvPad AD100, the latest in the string of Tegra 2 slates.
In fact, this electronic, according to SlashGear
, is quite similar, in terms of hardware, to the Interpad that E-Noa showcased at IFA 2010 in Berlin, Germany.
The Tegra 2 SoC is paired with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage, although a microSD card slot can be sued to increase said storage.
The machine also features wireless connectivity via WiFi and optional integrated 3G, in addition to a mini USB 2.0 port and a speaker.
Mouse Computer will only make its creation available in Japan, at least at first, and it has already pre-loaded it with the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system and some Japanese-centric apps.
Set to start shipping before the current month is out, the product has already been given a price, of 39,800 yen, which is the equivalent of $474. This sum is somewhat lower than the 399 Euro, or $508, that Interpad sells for.
