There seems to be an Android slate that is quite difficult to get hold of at the moment, so difficult that we have only managed to locate one place where people can pick up the tablet if desired. The Android slate we are talking about is the Proscan 8-inch 4.0 tablet, an ICS tablet that is worth contemplating considering the reasonable price tag the slate carries.
The Proscan slate sports an 8-inch capacitive multi-touch display with 800 x 600 resolution, along with 4GB storage, 512MB RAM, WiFi, HDMI-out, a front facing camera of some description, 720p, and runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and that’s basically all the specs that are listed.
However doing a search, I discovered someone who actually managed to purchase the Proscan 4.0 Android 8-inch tablet, who gives a bit more information on the Android slate.
Android Tablets forum member PLAX, states that the slate is distributed by Canadian company Curtis International, and gives us more specifications on the device stating the tablet sports a 1.2GHz Boxchip A10 processor along with a 400Mhz GPU, that front facing camera turns out to be 1.3 megapixel, has 802.11b/g/n WiFi, support for 1080p / 3D video output, and packs a 4400mAh battery.
However despite being an Android 4.0 slate it appears that people that do own one have been experiencing quite a problem with accessing Google Play, with several saying that the tablet crashes every time, and thus you can’t download any apps.
The only place we have managed to locate the Proscan 4.0 Android 8-inch tablet up for sale is over at Biglots, where the slate is up for grabs for $119.99.
Do any of our readers own a Proscan 4.0 Android 8-inch tablet, if so what is your opinion of the slate?
