Up until now, Gigabyte‘s tablet efforts have generally run Windows and been convertible touchscreen netbooks; now, it seems, the company has decided it wants a bite of the Android slate market. ARMDevices spotted the Gigabyte GN-TB100 at CeBIT 2011 this week, a 10.1-inch NVIDIA Tegra 2 tablet with a high-quality 1280 x 800 IPS display, integrated 3G and HDMI.
There’s also WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and up to 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Gigabyte is particularly proud of the display, which is of course higher-resolution than you’d find on an iPad, and there are twin cameras too, 5-megapixels on the back and 1.3-megapixels up-front for video calls.
According to Gigabyte, the GN-TB100 is expected to ship in July 2011, with a few more aesthetic tweaks in-between now and then. Hopefully that will also extend to updating the OS; the prototypes are running Android 2.2 Froyo, rather than the Honeycomb we’d expect to see.
