Camangi WebStation Review

Camangi WebStation Review

The Camangi WebStation was announced back when Android-based tablets were still a novelty; since then we've seen the iPad launch, various other tablets attempt to grab our attention, and read a few pretty dire reviews of the company's first-gen offering. On the SlashGear test bench today, then, is the "new upgraded version"of the WebStation; at $275 it's around half the price of Apple's tablet, but is it double the value? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Camangi Webstation first-impressions: sluggish CPU and poor app selection [Updated]

Camangi Webstation first-impressions: sluggish CPU and poor app selection [Updated]

Having seen the first unboxing video of the Camangi Webstation yesterday, initial impressions are beginning to filter through.  Unfortunately, they're not all positive; Laptop spent some time with the 7-inch Android slate and while build quality and design are just as good as we'd heard, actually performance is less impressive.  They describe the Webstation as "sluggish", with the 624MHz Marvell processor "taking a few seconds longer to load apps and web pages or respond to button presses than we like."

Updated: A second review is in, and it's a whole lot more critical.  Check out why one Camangi Webstation pre-order customer is already looking at how he can return his device after the cut.

Camangi Webstation gets second video demo

We're still waiting for the first Camangi Webstation orders to arrive with those brave enough to order from the new start-up, but there's at least a second video of the touchscreen Android slate in action to tide us over.  Steven Lin apparently had early access to the Webstation after being invited to join Camangi's test program last month, and he's put up a video overview of the device in action.

Camangi WebStation seemingly imminent; new Android app market launched

Camangi WebStation seemingly imminent; new Android app market launched

Blimey, could Camangi actually be serious about selling their WebStation Android tablet?  We've scoffed a little at the hitherto-unknown company's intentions of having the 7-inch WiFi tablet on the market by December 2009, but a new site and a freshly launched Camangi Market (for apps friendly to the slate's hardware and screen resolution) seem to suggest that the joke's on us.  For once, we're happy to be in the wrong as if the pricing is right, the WebStation could prove highly appealing.

Camangi WebStation Android UMPC on sale “no later than early December”

Camangi WebStation Android UMPC on sale “no later than early December”

We made no attempt to disguise our confusion about what looked like a poorly orchestrated teaser campaign for the Camangi WebStation Android slate earlier this year, but neither did we deny that there's still a space in our heart (and on our shelves) for the first affordable example of just such a device.  Camangi's site - now fully functional and accepting pre-launch reservations - is claiming that the 7-inch WebStation will drop "no later than early December this year".

Camangi WebStation 7-inch Android tablet sows own teaser campaign [Video]

Camangi WebStation 7-inch Android tablet sows own teaser campaign [Video]

We're not entirely sure what's going on with Camangi's WebStation, but it seems the manufacturers of this 7-inch Android-based touchscreen slate are hoping to drum up their own mystery campaign.  That would, at least, explain the bizarre press release (which you can read after the cut); the official site appears to be down, but Google's cache suggests the WebStation runs Android 1.5 on a Marvell 624MHz PXA303 processor, with onboard WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS.
