SmartQ Ten: Android Tablet T10 Announced

By Chris Cook - Feb 14, 2011

Tablets are appearing in all directions it seems lately, most being basically the same design wise. The SmartQ Ten tablet however seems to have something more to offer. Adapted from its predecessor the R10, the T10 will have the same IPS display but will add its piezoelectric technology.

With its piezoelectric touchscreen the Ten will allow users to have multi-touch capability with the use of non-conductive instruments such as a stylus as well as fingers. The screen measures in at 9.7” this means it will provide precision input with cheaper material on sharper screen clarity.

The way the technology works is piezoelectric transducers that are underneath the screen at different points turn a touch or vibration into an electric signal. The hardware can then translate the signal using an algorithm to determine which point the screen was touched. Find out more about the screen at SmartQ.

The SmartQ Ten also comes with a Cortex-A9 chip, 512MB RAM, Mali 400 GPU and will run Android 2.2. Engadget say there is no release date as of yet or price. They also say it is not known if it’ll have an update for Honeycomb. Read the rest of their article here.

Is the SmartQ T10 a tablet that stands out from the others to you? Will its screen technology be enough to separate it from the competition?

  • It’s hard to become a market leader in tablets world if depend only on screen, especially if they have to compete with more well known brand. However, a “piezoelectric touchscreen” technology is something interesting and takes the tablet screen technology into the next level. What I love most from this screen technology is the screen still gives response even if we use gloves. I want to try this device if the price is reasonable.
