NEC Android-based LifeTouch Cloud Communicator Debuts

November 11, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

NEC has announced the launch of its LifeTouch Android tablet which is a new cloud communicator and the customers in Japan will be able to pick it up by the end of the month for a yet to be specified price. The device, which was first unveiled back in June, will be exhibited at the C&C User Forum & iEXPO 2010 in Tokyo between November 11 and 12.

The tablet comes equipped with a 7-inch pen input-capable display (described as a “Retina Touch Panel”) and an ARM Cortex A8 processor. It also has a 3 megapixel camera, an SD card slot, built-in WiFi and GPS, and runs Android 2.1 operating system.

The device became a head turner for all the wrong reasons when it was unveiled. However, the company has refined the device a bit. In addition to ditching a handful of buttons, the tablet is also now being pitched specifically as a “cloud communicator” that’s especially well-suited for corporate customers.

The company claims that the LifeTouch cloud communicator will enable corporate customers to generate new revenues through customer services and to improve the efficiency of business operations through an optimized user interface.

It is not certain whether it will hit US stores anytime soon. We will let you know as soon as we get the news.

In the meantime, you can provide us with our comments. What do you think about the new device?
