TazPad Android Tablet with NFC to Debut at CeBIT 2011

 |  |  |  |  |  February 28, 2011

The world seems to have gone tablet-crazy with all sorts of companies that we have never heard of jumping into the tablet market. CeBIT 2011 is set to kick off soon and you can be that there will be hoards of new tablets unveiled at the show, and many of them will run Android.

One of the tablets that will break cover at CeBIT is the TazPad. The new tablet has a 7-inch screen that supports multitouch and has support for HD content and HDMI output. The tablet also has WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC (near-field communication), and ZigBee technologies. TazTag claims that the TazPad is the first tablet with integrated NFC, which will someday be used to facilitate contactless mobile transactions among other things.

The tablet has a camera, GPS, and an accelerometer inside as well. A few key facts are still unknown. We don’t have a price, CPU specs or the Android version at this time. I would assume those specs would be coming when the show starts. The tablet is expected to ship in Q2 2011.
