Taiwan Mobile, a mobile carrier from Taiwan, has just announced that they will be adding another piece of hardware into their arsenal – the myPad P2 tablet. From the sounds of it, this won’t be anything groundbreaking although it will be an alternative to all the Android-powered tablets that are in the market, not to mention being a possible low cost alternative to the iPad 2. Powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread, we wished that it came with Android 3.0 Honeycomb instead as the latter has been optimized for tablet use. Ah well, at least there is a sequel to the myPad P1, which means there had been enough domestic demand to warrant a second outing in the tablet market.
Meant to be pocket friendly in terms of size and price, this 7″ touchscreen display device will retail for around $315 sans contract, sporting an 800MHz Qualcomm processor that is accompanied by a couple of cameras – a VGA front-facing camera and a 3-megapixel shooter at the back. Never mind if there are no Wi-Fi hotspots around, you can always use it on Taiwan Mobile’s 3G network for your voice and video calls in addition to data.
