Photo tour of Identity Tab: 7-inch budget tablet

Summary:We are constantly being surprised at the high prices OEMs are putting on Android tablets, but there are a few exceptions to the rule. The reasonably-priced Identity Tab is demonstrated in photos in this article.

We are constantly being surprised at the high prices OEMs are putting on Android tablets, but there are a few exceptions to the rule. The good folks at Dynamism sent me an early model of the Identity Tab they are selling, and the excellent build quality is welcome given the reasonable price of the tablet. Tablets with Wi-Fi only may be rare, but this is one exception to the rule.

I am not giving a full review of the Identity Tab as the unit I am evaluating, while the final hardware version, is lacking the final software that will be shipping to customers. The hardware is impressive on its own, and worth taking a photo tour of a very nice Android tablet.

Check out the photo tour of the Identity Tab Android tablet.

Despite the reasonable price of $349, Enspert (OEM) only took a low-budget route with two of the components. The 7-inch touch display, while bright and crisp, only displays at 800x480, a low resolution. The camera has no LED flash as is common, and is only a 3MP version.
