Pierre Cardin Launches Its Own PC-7006 Tablet PC


The market of tablet computers running on Android is continuously increasing. Thus it's no wonder that new companies in this field come up with their own versions of tablet PCs.

One of these companies is the famous fashion label Pierre Cardin, which has recently launched onto the market a 7-inch device with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, which, according to the firm is "the UK's first designer tablet PC."

Probably the most interesting thing that makes the device special is its case enriched with a metallic Pierre Cardin logo along with a black gift box.

Dubbed the Pierre Cardin PC-7006 Tablet PC, the gadget measures 19.5 x 12.3 x 1.4 cm (7.6 x 4.8 x 0.5 in). This is not the company's first to be launched into the mobile electronics market. Last year Pierre Cardin introduced the 7-inch PC729 and 8.9-inch PC819, devices running Windows 7 and equipped with VIA's C7-M processors.

It would be interesting to note that the previous two models could not boast a long battery life. Unlike them, the new tablet PC from Pierre Cardin, which weighs 520 g (1.14 lb), shows better results in this regard. This is mainly due to the features that consume less power, including a Samsung Cortex A8 1 GHz processor and Android 2.2 (Froyo) (and not 3.x).

The user will also be able to discover 512 MB of RAM and an internal memory with a capacity of 4 gigabytes. The memory can be expanded using a Micro SD slot that supports cards with a capacity of up to 16 GB.

In addition, the tablet PC has an HDMI port, 1.3-megapixel camera able to record 720P HD video.
