Woow Digital is not really a household name in the tablet world but we have to give it kudos for having the audacity to title its latest Android-powered tablet 'The One'. There is something elemental and magnetic about the name and we are eager to learn more.
Images of the up-coming 10in tablet have been leaked on the internet with the tablet apparently running Android’s much rumoured Gingerbread-update of its OS platform. On the inside The One will run on an NVIDIA Tegra 2 core processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage. The 10in screen will have a 1024 x 600 resolution, while wireless connectivity will be provided by way of Bluetooth, WiFi and WCDMA 3G.
Woow Digital which currently sells two 7in Android tablets – one of which is marked Sold Out on its website – is a Japanese-based company. It is planning to sell The One in its native country before Christmas for ¥42,000 (£320) before it goes on sale in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Europe.
With CES 2011 coming upon us very soon, and it being the era of the tablet, Woow Digital will be hoping to get a jump on its competitors and attract customers who just can’t wait to get their hands on an Android tablet running Gingerbread. However it is more likely that people will want to wait for the tablet-specific Honeycomb version of Android.
