The Smartbook Surfer is an Android tablet that is expected to create quite a wave in the German tech market in the next few days. Specs-wise, it is not too different from the recent GenTouch 78 that was debuted by Augen for the American customers. The Smartbook Surfer integrates a lineup of impressive hardware features with a price that is very much on the affordable side.
Let me elaborate more on the technical features. Firstly, this is an Android 2.1 tablet that comes equipped with a 7-inches large display that packs a good 800×400 pixels. The processor speed is not state-of-the-art but at 720MHz, the Telechips TTC8902 should work for most of the users. Other hardware specs include a 256MB DDR2 RAM, 2GB internal flash storage, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, miniSD card slot, webcam, GPS and USB ports. The Smartbook Surfer also contains a HDMI output for 1080p high definition video output. Battery life should be good, if not excellent.
The new Android tablet is already on sale in Germany at a price of €179. That’s about $234.
