AndyPad tech specs confirmed, “Pro” model to cost £179

Andy Pad has just got a little more REAL, thanks to the maker finally nailing down the full tech spec of both hardware versions of its forthcoming 7″ Android 2.3 tablet. There’s nothing new that hasn’t already been well foreshadowed by the company and the many leaks, but it’s still good to have a proper list.

This is it:

AndyPad also says the Pro model features “SensaTouch” screen technology, which we’ve just tried Googling with no luck. Anyone have an explanation? Here’s the announcement:

The Andy Pad is here!

We’ve had a fantastic response from bloggers, journalists and tweeters since we announced the Andy Pad back in April.

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display.

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
