Amazon’s new Kindle Fire has almost all other tablet manufacturers, except Apple, running scared. We have seen quite a few price cuts already, and now every manufacturer who was pricing their tablets out of the market is scrambling to launch inexpensive tablets.
Barnes & Noble and Kobo competed with the Amazon Kindle in the ebook reader space, and now, they are challenging Amazon in the tablet segment as well.
Barnes & Noble will launch the next version of the very successful Nook Color soon, and Kobo just launched the Vox Android tablet, priced at just $200.
It’s not as powerful as the Kindle Fire, but it seems to be a pretty good deal for just $200.
Kobo Vox Specifications
It comes with a 7 inch multi-touch display with a resolution of 1024 x 800 pixels. It is powered by an 800 MHz processor and has 512 MB of RAM. It comes with 8 GB internal storage, and supports up to 32 GB SD cards. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and supports the Android Market too. Kobo is touting a battery life of 7 hours for the Vox.
Kobo says that the AFFS+ display works great outdoors as well, unlike most normal display panels, and has extra wide viewing angles.
It will be available starting October 28.
