The SmartQ 7 Tablet that surfaced earlier this week is getting more and more interesting as additional details about the portable device are uncovered. The 7-inch tablet made an appearance on the Chinese website EletroWorld where it was listed with a $189 price tag and the following specs:

  • Samsung ARM S3C6410 667MHz processor
  • 7-inch Touch-lens screen, 800 x 480 pixel display
  • 128MB DDR RAM memory
  • 1GB Flash storage memory
  • Ubuntu Linux
  • Chinese/English/German/French/Portuguese language support
  • Memory card slot supporting up to 32GB microSD memory cards
  • Supports WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth
  • USB 2.0 host supported to connect EDGE/HSDPA network adapters or mobile phones
  • Weight: 8.8 ounces
  • Battery: 4500mAh

EletroWorld is reporting that they will get their hands on one sample unit on May 12th with a limited production run expected in the next month or two. If the SmartQ 7 turns out to be as good in person as it is on paper, then this tablet may be making its appearance on coffee tables, night stands, and backpacks of device lovers around the world. In fact, that lime one would look quite nice in my living room and would be perfect for those moments of impromptu web browsing.

The SmartQ 7 is now listed in the product database.
