Tablet taken to bizzare level: Frontier FT103 21.5-inch Tab launched

Toshiba had released a new Android device with 13-inch screen, but we have something more than that in the Android genre. Now people have doubt if they can even call it a tablet or not. Frontier has come out with the launch of Frontier FT103 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich based Tablet in Japan. It is also called the Smart display device. So what is so special about this tab? It has a gigantic display of 21.5 inch, may be bigger than the television you have in your home.

People are not ready to call this as a tablet as it is the smartphone internals added to a big 21.5 inch display. The Japanese Company Frontier launched this product in Japan and will be available in Japan at the end of this month. The cost would be about $440.

The device has the display of 19201200 pixe ls and has got Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, 8 GB internal storage, 1GB RAM and has got the OMAP 4428 1.0 GHz processor. Other features are- multiple full-size USB ports and a full size HDMI input.

That is the reason it is called the Smart Display by some. The owners can use it as a regular PC monitor and again can have it used as the Android tablet. The device comes with WiFi, Bluetooth, 1.2 megapixel front camera and expanded storage with micro-SD support.

With this large display, mobility with the Frontier FT103 is out of the question. In that case, it has to be used as a monitor only. But then again, it makes us wonder, why not call it a monitor instead of calling it a tab? What do you think? Do let us know.
