SKYPAD Alpha 2SKYTEX Technology has just announced the launch of its upcoming Android tablet – the SKYPAD Alpha 2. Arriving in time for Christmas, the SKYPAD Alpha 2 features a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU paired with a Mali-400 graphics processor, a 7″ 800 x 480 capacitive display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (up to 32GB), Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread (Ice Cream Sandwich promised for early 2012), HDMI output, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3,000mAh battery.

The tablet also features a front-facing VGA camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB slot for connecting external plug and play devices (keyboard, mice, USB drives etc). No word on pricing but the tablet will be shipping out on December 20th 2011. Judging by the tablet’s specs it probably won’t be priced on the higher end of the spectrum so it looks like we’ll have one more device to add to the list of budget Android tablets available this Christmas. Anybody interested?
