NEC announces 7 and 10.10-inch LaVie Tab E Android tablets for Japan
NEC has announced a couple of new tablet devices for the Japanese sector – the TE307/N1W (7 inch) and the TE510/N1B 10.1-inch tablets. These two devices are new editions to the company’s LaVie Tab E Android smart devices series. To start things off – the TE307/N1W 7 inch tablet features a 1024 x 600 pixel IPS LCD display to run Android 4.1 (which is a bit odd considering 4.2 has been rolling out for quite awhile). It will feature a 1.2-GHz dual core processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM. It will be available with 16GB of onboard memory with a microSD / SDHC card support. Connectivity features include WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The 7 inch TE307/N1W also comes loaded up with Dolby Digital Plus for better audio and houses a 3,500 mAH battery.
The 10.1-inch TE510/N1B model has a display resolution of 1200 x 800 pixels, runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and features a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU. It’ll be available in a 32GB variant with support for external memory. Connectivity features are the same as the smaller device. The TE510 will also come with a more powerful battery of 6,500 mAH and weighs in around 560g which is roughly 200g heavier than the smaller TE307. A 3MP front facing camera will also be part of the feature set for both devices but only the 10.1-inch model will come with a 5 megapixel primary shooter located at the back. NEC has also included dedicated photo and video sharing apps for these devices to make it easier to share files to your PC. The TE510 10.1-inch tablet is priced at around $359 (34,860 YEN) and the TE307 with its 7 inch display is going for around $184 (17,850 YEN).
