One of the reasons that people flock to the Android operating system is to make sure that they are able to have a whole lot more freedom with the smartphone or tablet as compared to a closed ecosystem where the mobile operating system scene is concerned. The ZaReason ZaTab ZT2, which is a hackable Android-powered tablet that retails for $299 a pop, will arrive with an Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor, accompanied by a PowerVR SGX544 MP2 graphics chipset, a 10.1″ IPS display at 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, a 5-point capacitive multitouch touchscreen, 8GB of internal memory and 2GB of RAM.
Of course, just in case the aforementioned 8GB of internal memory is not quite enough for you, there is always the presence of a microSD memory card slot for additional expansion, a mini HDMI port, a micro USB port, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, a 5-megapixel shooter at the back, a front-facing VGA camera, and a 6,000mAh battery. Should you pick up the ZaTab ZT2 from ZaReason, you will also be on the receiving end of the source code for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software that it comes with. Not too shabby,eh? Would you want to spend a portion of your free time to figure out just what you can hack on a tablet?
