Marvel Digital Mercury: Cheap Android Tablet, Still More Expensive than HP TouchPad

 |  |  |  |  August 23, 2011

HP might have had to have a fire sale to dump their now-discontinued WebOS TouchPad tablets, but Marvel Digital’s Mercury Pad Tablet is running Android, so you’ll be safe with it. As tablets go, the Mercury has solid specs, but is still more expensive that the discount-priced $99 TouchPad (if you can still find one).

The Mercury Pad Tablet has a 7-inch multi-touch screen with 800 × 400 resolution, and runs Android 2.3. It has two cameras: a front-facing 0.3MP and a rear-facing 2MP one. It comes with a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, expandable storage from 4GB to 16GB, and an HDMI output.

The device is sleek and unobtrusive, making it interesting for some uses, like reading books and quickly consulting your emails. As a matter of fact, it looks sort of like a giant iPhone 4.

Marvel Digital sells the Mercury Pad Tablet for $259(USD) at their online store.
