iriver – the South Korean company best known for making media players – has launched its very first Android Jelly Bean tablet. Called iriver WOWtab, the new device offers features that almost make it an Asus Google Nexus 7 clone – but its design (an arguably nice one) saves it.
Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the iriver WOWtab sports a 7 inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels, and is obviously about the same size as the Nexus 7: 194 x 122 x 10.6 mm. Furthermore, the tablet has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 2MP front-facing camera, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 4,000 mAh battery. It even comes with a MicroSD card slot – a feature that’s missing on the Nexus 7.
According to kBench, the new iriver WOWtab will be available in South Korea starting February 21, for a special introductory price of 248,000 KRW (about $230 or €172).
There is no word if iriver is planning to release its Jelly Bean tablet outside Korea. There are high chances this won’t happen – so the WOWtab could remain a Nexus 7 alternative just for Korean customers. Whatever the case may be, the official webpage of the WOWtab can be accessed here at iriver.
