ICD Gemini prototype gets hands-on: buggy but promising, coming Summer 2010

The ICD Gemini certainly wows when it comes to hardware specifications, but anybody can write a glowing spec-sheet and throw together some renders; happily, ICD aren't all talk and no trousers.  Stuff have grabbed some hands-on time with a Gemini prototype and even have an estimated UK release date to go with it: August 2010, apparently, with carrier support bringing prices to roughly iPad parity.

ICD Gemini takes on iPad: 1GHz Tegra 2, 3G, multitouch & Android

Last we heard of ICD, the company were showing us their Tegra 2-based Vega and Ultra tablets at CES 2010; now they're back with details of a new model, the ICD Gemini, again using the second-generation 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra chipset and now paired with an 11.2-inch touchscreen (using either a resistive or capacitive panel, both of which support multitouch).  Android does duty as the OS, and the specs certainly don't disappoint at first glance: integrated 3G with voice functionality, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, together with USB peripheral support and twin cameras.

Tegra 2 “serious issues” delaying Notion Ink, ICD & Compal tablets [Updated]

Bad news if you've been avoiding iPad hype and holding out for a tablet based on NVIDIA's second-gen Tegra chipset.  We've just heard from a trusted source that all projects based on the new Tegra chip have been delayed, and that none are expected to arrive on the market before late August 2010.  The issue - which is said to include a combination of hardware and software technical problems, as well as stability and Flash availability - will impact projects such as Notion Ink's Adam, the ICD Ultra and Vega and a 7-inch Compal tablet that had been expected to arrive in early June 2010.

CES 2010 has been quite an event for tablets, and we'll forgive you if your eyes have gone square trying to keep up with all the touchscreens on offer.  One of the names that has cropped up a couple of times - and attached to carriers who'll be distributing the tablets, no less - is ICD, who will be providing Verizon with an LTE tablet, the Ultra, and T-Mobile UK with a desktop tablet, the Vega.  We promised video of both tablets in action, and have updated both of our original hands-on articles with just that.

Earlier today T-Mobile and ICD announced their intention to put a 15-inch Vega tablet into every UK household that would pay for one, and we promised to sit down with the two companies for a hands-on play.   The Android-based Vega uses the Tegra 250 chipset that we now know as the NVIDIA Tegra 2, and T-Mobile are targeting the slate specifically at the "Mom" segment whom, they hope, will readily adopt it as the linchpin of their family lives.
