Size matters – Hannspree go the extra inches in the tablet race

hannspree-tab While others are content to tempt the public with a mere seven inches, Hannspree have stepped up to the fold and revealed a tablet that offers a full three inches more.  First shown today at Berlin’s IFA expo, the 10″ device has an LED backlit 16:9 screen with the standard 1024 x 600 resolution (however it’s not yet clear if the screen is resistive or capacitive).  On a more interesting note is Hannspree’s decision to pack its slab with Nvidia’s very capable Tegra 2 chipset to power its Android 2.2 OS.  Its also armed with a raft of input and outputs including  Mini USB and Mini HDMI ports – perfect for PMP action, especially with it’s 3500mAh giving up to 8hrs playback.  Given its size, power and software, this certainly could be a device to watch.

Hannspree are planning to release the unnamed device in Europe in November at €399 for a 16GB / WiFi model and a 3G variant for €499, a price competitive to similar fruity products.
