Storage Options has just announced the launch of the world’s first personalized tablets for youths – and in this case “youths” mean people under the age of 25. Called the miScroll, the tablet is the fourth and latest addition to the company’s Scroll tablet lineup. What separates this tablet from other tablets on the market is the ability to customize the device with its colorful an exhangeable covers that come in a variety of vibrant colors and distinctive designs. Touted to make the perfect birthday present, this tablet can be customized to match its user’s personality and interests.On the specs side, the tablet packs a 1GHz ARM11 processor, a 7” (800 x 480) resistive touchscreen, 256MB RAM, 4GB of memory (expandable to 32GB with a microSD card), a replaceable 3,400mAh Li-Polymer rechargeable battery that is replaceable (touted to last 4 hours), a built-in 0.3-megapixel camera, WiFi, mini HDMI port, and a USB port. Android 2.3 Gingerbread (at least it’s not Froyo right?) is the operating system of choice, though it won’t have access to the Android Market (not a huge problem since apps are readily available everywhere, but it still is a minor inconvenience).
The miScroll is available now, with a retail price of $193 (£119.95). Decently priced for an entry-level tablet designed for youth, if you’re willing to look past its resistive touchscreen and specs.
