Two Gits about to hit

Git-Surge-ProWhat is a Git? Well, at first you might think it is a defamatory remark about someone. However, There are some who might also think about Git Media, who have announced their two new Android Honeycomb tablets. Git Media will be selling two tablets that are identical except that they each utilise a different processor. One uses the NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core chip, and the other uses the Samsung Exynos dual-core chip. Other than that they are specced as such:

  • 10.1-inch displays
  • Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) OS
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 250GB internal storage
  • 5-megapixel rear-facing camera
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • USB and Mini USB ports, Micro SD
  • Wi-FI, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G (optional)

Right off the bat, you may notice that both devices come with a whopping 250GB Hard Drive, instead of the paltry 16GB and 32GB variety in most current Android tablets. Of course, it’s important to note that this HD is probably not an SSD like the current crop, which could add to the weight and size of the tablet itself. Still, for those users that are data hoarders, this could be the tablet of choice.
The second thing that Git Media is doing to have a competitive edge in the crowded tablet market, is an aggressive pricing strategy, and a limited time pre-order special sale. Both the The Git Surge and Git Pro will sell for only $479.99 each. There is no word on UK pricing so we will have to guess, probably about two aardvarks. Also, Git Media will soon begin pre-selling these tablets on their website. Furthermore, if you pre-order online, you will get a complementary gift of your choice which is either a leather case and wireless Bluetooth keyboard, or a 3-year extended warranty. Both of these complimentary add-ons are valued at $100.
