Interpad Android 2.2 Tegra Tablet

After yesterday’s surprise Android tablet being available at Kmart, it only seems natural to follow it up with another tablet story. The nice thing about this one is that this tablet has better specs and a cleaner look and according to MobiFlip this device will be available later this year.

The Interpad tablet will feature Android 2.2, 1Ghz Tegra 2 CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 16GB of internal flash memory, 10-inch capacitive touchscreen, Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, USB 2.0, and HDMI-out. Something that has been glossed over is that the Interpad will host a huge 3900mAh battery which could prove to be comparable to the iPad’s stellar battery life. Of course, using all this fancy gear is like a constant battery-suck, so it could end up being average (3-5 hours?). The Interpad will be priced around €399 (around $518) and there may be another higher end model with 3G and camera for €500 (around $649).

Something else of note is that the device mock-up appears to have the Android Market logo on board which is becoming quite perplexing. Google has said that Android tablets will not be able to ship with the Android Market installed but this is the second clue in the last two days where Google may just be changing their mind. If this is the case, Android apps are going to have to be slightly tweaked to support larger screen resolutions which isn’t really that big of a deal.

Anyone out there holding their breath for this bad boy or will it go the way of the Adam?
