When it comes to gadgets, I want my stuff to work more than I want any specific name on it. If I am going to plunk down hundreds of dollars, I expect the features and performance to come first over a fancy designer name. I know there are some out there that think a designer name is just as important as the performance, and if you are this sort, the Pierre Cardin Android tablet might be just right for you.
The tablet sells for £275 (~$450 USD), and has mundane specs such as a 1GHz Samsung Cortex A8 processor and a 800×480, 7-inch multi-touch screen. Internal storage is just 4GB, but at least it has 512MB of RAM. That storage capacity can be upped with a microSD card to get 16GB more.
The tablet has WiFi and supports 3G, if you buy the optional dongle. It also has a 1.3MP front camera, micro USB port, and a mini HDMI port. The worst thing about the tablet is that it is running Android 2.2 Froyo, and I wouldn’t count on updates coming any time soon.
Funny thing is, about the only “designer” things about this are the case and its “uber-cool black gift box,” and those are just about as dull as you can get too.
