Augen dishes details on new line of tablets.
Augen has released details on their next line of tablets. The famed Kmart tablet (Gentouch78) maker is going all out and releasing 6 tablets ranging from $199 to $599 USD. Many of them have some interesting added extras, while others are run of the mill.
Here is the lineup:
1) Augen GenTouch Latte: $199.99 tablet with a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel resistive touchscreen, a G-sensor, HDMI output, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and 2GB of storage weighing 13.05 ounces.
2)Augen GenTouch Latte Grande: $249.99 version of the above tablet with a higher resolution 800 x 600 pixel display, Android 2.2, a faster 800MHz CPU, a 3 axis accelerometer and n ambient light sensor.
3)Augen GenTouch Espresso: $349.99 7 inch tablet with an 800 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU< Android 2.2, Bluetooth, WiFi, 8GB of storage, vibration, a compass, accelerometer, and ambient light sensor.
4)Augen GenTouch Espresso Firma: 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel resisitve touchscreen display, a dual core CPU, and a “magical wand pen” for handwriting recognition, Android 2.2, 2G of storage, and 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi.
5)Augen GenTouch Espresso Dolce: $429.99 tablet with a 10.1 inch capacitive 1024 x 768 pixel display and most of the same features as the Espresso.
6)Augen GenTouch Espresso Doppio: $599.99 tablet that sounds like the Dolce on the hardare side, but it dual boots Android and Ubuntu Linux and also comes with a backlit keyboard docking station with its own battery — providing up to 15 hours of run time when docked.
I am an owner that Gentouch78 and its biggest downfall was the lack of support from Augen. Lets hope they can improve their support before releasing these, as they will have a lot on their plate.
