In June this year, NEC started showcasing an Android tablet called LifeTouch. Originally scheduled to go on sale in Japan in October, the device now has a new release date [JP]: “sometime this month” (you can see the final design on the picture). Unlike most other tablets, NEC now says they will market the LifeTouch exclusively to businesses (the initial plan was to offer it to individuals, too).
To recap, here are the main specs (NEC changed some features, but these are the final specs):
What’s interesting is that NEC plans to help its customers distribute content via the LifeTouch (i.e. for marketing or educational purposes), by providing a cloud-based distribution system as well as content. The price for the device hasn’t been fixed yet.
