Parrot’s latest tablet, the Parrot Asteroid, will run on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system (which clearly does not bode well in this day and age, considering how many of the newer apps would be able to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher), leaving us to wonder how come Parrot does not want to roll out the Asteroid with Android 4.0 or later, in order to keep up with the rest of the competition in the market.
Well, the Parrot Asteroid has been described to be the complete Bluetooth hands-free solution, while offering staples such as music connectivity and connected apps, too. Hardware specifications of this tablet include a 5” multi-touch display, a Parrot-specific user interface, compatibility with steering wheel controls (Parrot UNIKA), Bluetooth, USB & Wi-Fi tethering, advanced voice recognition, automatic phonebook synchronization, call management, and being able to pair up with 10 different phones.
Compatible audio formats include MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV, and OGG, where the built-in GPS receiver is of the SIRF IV variety. It is already out worldwide, so take a look at the video above and see whether the Parrot Asteroid is your cup of tea or not.
