Medion LifeTab P9514 Android Tablet at IFA 2011; Price and Specs revealed
Budget tablets often don’t get a second glance when there’s so much compromise to justify the cut price, usually the operating system and software takes a hit to keep things on the cheaper side. Today, Essen-based consumer electronics company Medion has detailed at IFA 2011 its own 10-inch Android tablet, the P9514 LifeTab, which is scheduled to hit European stores sometime in Q4 priced at €399.
It seems that Medion is not much interested in disclosing the details of the upcoming devices as taking snaps at the company’s booth at the conference was strictly prohibited.
The Medion LifeTab P9514 is powered by a nVidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor at 1GHz and in the inside you can find 32GB of internal storage capacity. There are two cameras for shooting photos, recording videos, and making video calls: on the rear a 5-megapixel camera, and on the front a 2-megapixel camera. In case you need to expand the storage capacity there is a slot for microSD memory cards.
In terms of connectivity the Medion tablet features WiFi, quad-band HSDPA and an HDMI output as well as GPS. Its battery life can last up to 10 hours and one of the good details is that the unit comes preloaded with LifeTab media software.
The tablet will be launched in Europe for about 399 Euros (about $566) during the holiday season. No word of whether it will be available stateside.
Based on various sources and rumours floating all around the market, it is almost safe to assume that Medion is in no mood to launch the product anytime before the Christmas holiday season, or towards the beginning of 2012.
