Packard Bell has now joined the ever growing group of PC companies which have now made a tablet PC.
It’s quite easy to understand why. People love portability and well established PC companies have the know-how, and therefore in theory should create a useful and popular tablet PC.
The Packard Bell Liberty will be on the market for just £350 which is one of the cheapest 10.1-inch 1,280×800 multitouch display tablets.
This tablet contains a tegra 2 processor on Honeycomb (Android 3.0).
Running Android it will be able to access the full Android market and will even have Angry Birds, Need For Speed, Let’s Golf and many other apps included, straight out of the box which is a great bonus.
Most tablets come with dual cameras and the Packard Bell Liberty is no exception. It has a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-megapixel camera on the front.
There’s also an HDMI and USB port, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack and microSD card slot.
It’s great to see a HDMI port, so you will able to connect it to your TV easily. Having a microSD card slot also gives you the option to increase the memory by a further 32GB. This is useful as the tablet only has 16GB of internal storage.
The dimensions of the device are unknown as of yet. However from pictures of the Liberty tablet the design has a nice clean metal finish and is quite thin.
It comes in 2 colours, red or silver. The 10.1inch screen is made of the commonly used Gorilla glass. In addition there are 2 models a Wi-Fi only version or a Wi-Fi and 3G version.
This Packard Bell Liberty is a great addition to the tablet PC market as it’s an affordable Android device that has all the features of a great Android tablet.
However because this market is growing rapidly, there will definitely be new devices that will offer improved features soon.
