Android-powered tablets seem to be all the rage, and this “fever” has not stopped just yet with NEC jumping aboard the bandwagon as well, releasing a 7″ touchscreen display tablet that responds equally well to finger and stylus input. It will be powered by the Android 2.1 version, so hopefully NEC will roll out a FroYo update to keep up with the times. Hardware-wise, the LifeTouch is pretty impressive with its ARM Cortex A8 CPU, 256MB RAM, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, a 3-megapixel camera, GPS capability, a built-in accelerometer (perfect for playing those tilt games), an SDHC memory card slot and more importantly, a touted 8 hours of battery life (which still comes up at least a couple of hours short of the Apple iPad). Hitting Japan first later this October, we do hope to see this puppy hit the US in the near future.
