Back in August, several Pandigital devices were mentioned, such as the Pandigital Star, Nova and Planet. If you weren’t satisfied with those offerings back then, Pandigital has announced the Supernova tablet, which is the bigger brother of the Pandigital Nova, and by bigger we do mean that literally.
Unlike the Nova, the Supernova has seen a jump in screen size to 8”, but unfortunately it appears to have retained its resolution of 800×600 in a 4:3 aspect ratio. In terms of hardware, potential customers can expect to find a 1GHz processor under the hood along with 4GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for additional memory expansion. It will also run on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3 as its platform of choice.
Despite the fact that it runs on Android, the Pandigital Supernova will not have access to the Android Market, which means that users will have to go to the GetJar alternative app store. The tablet will retail for $299 and is expected to hit retail stores mid-October. Given its price and somewhat mediocre hardware specs, the HTC Flyer (which is now going for the same price) looks to be a better buy.
