Medion a consumer electronics company known for computers and notebooks has announced a new Android tablet at IFA, Berlin. The fact that the Medion as a electronics company is not known to many has made this news appear a little slower than the Galaxy Note launch which was a buzz on the web as soon as it was announced by Samsung at the same event.
Medion has named this tablet as Medion Lifetab P9514 which would be primarily focusing in Europe. The stylish tablet will run the dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset which means that it would be amongst the faster computing tablets. Along with that this tablet would also run the Android Honeycomb 3.2 operating system powered by Google and this would be a great addition to it. What more interesting would be the 10.1 inches touch screen display would be the basic facts to look out for.
Also the 5 mega pixel rear side camera and 2 mega pixel front facing camera means that this tablet is not weak and its up to compete with other players.
Connectivity options for this tablet would include 3G data connectivity through UMTS and HSDPA, along with that inclusion of Wi-Fi would be greater choice and Bluetooth, GPRS with EDGE can finally make your tablet work with data connection. Apart from that it includes connectivity via HDMI and USB port. The DLNA support would allows users to easily share multimedia content with other DLNA enable devices. Its not confirmed whether it would come with 16 GB of internal storage or 32 GB but one thing is confirmed that you can added extra microSD card slot to this tablet and increase the memory. So that means that it extends beyond the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom where they limit you with storage and would compete with Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The 10.1 inches screen and high end configuration of this tablet makes it to heavy with a weight of 720 grams.
Medion Lifetab would be priced at 399 Euros and would be tough time for them to compete with other tablet players. There is no official word from the Medion team on the release date but we expect a launch of it in Q4, hope that we don’t want to wait too long.
