Tablet sales are booming and each manufacturer is jostling to get a slice of this lucrative market. Packard Bell is no different, preparing its first tablet named the Liberty Tab. The 10.1" Liberty Tab features a generous 1280x800 touch screen, backed by Nvidia's Tegra 2 SoC (System on a Chip), featuring two cores running at 1GHz. A rear 5MP camera, a front 2MP webcam, GPS capability, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 and 3G support complete the device. Other features include stereo speakers along with the expected; a microSD card slot, USB support and a HDMI output. Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) is the operating system of choice. Hardware aside, the Liberty Tab has a partial metal trim and a glossy back. The Liberty Tab is set to release in June although its pricing is not yet known.
