While Camangi’s WebStation Android slate got off to a patchy start, we’ve been curious as to what sort of price the company can bring the 7-inch touchscreen tablet in for, and now we know. Preorders are being taken for the WebStation – only in the US, Japan and Taiwan, at least at first – for $399 (unless you had an “early bird” coupon which saves you all of ten bucks) with free shipping.
That gets you a 7-inch WVGA touchscreen, WiFi b/g, GPS, a 624MHz Marvell PXA303 CPU and a battery apparently good for up to 4 days standby (with GPS and WiFi shut off) or 4-5hrs active use. Since the OS is Android 1.5 there’s also the App Market for downloading new software, but you’ll get a browser, email client and media player as standard.
Availability is said to be limited, but if you order before December 16th Camangi say you should have the WebStation by the end of the year. $399 is higher than our hoped-for target price of $300, but still seems semi-reasonable for a niche device; anybody tempted to get an order in?
