    7″ resistive/capacitive
    3G modem built in
    256mb RAM
    1GHz processor

    All of the other specifications I would keep the same to comply with the form factor, and still be a cheap and competative product aimed at a the same market as the V7.

    Price tag? $300ish

    Back to finish what I started… Need a better keyboard on the Galaxy!! (or less fat fingers from me!) -7” 720p screen, anything more raises the cost too far. Would be nice if it was close to edge to edge although a small lip on the very edge of the device to keep the screen from scratching when face down would be nice. -Processor probably 600Mhz to 800Mhz with dedicated graphics core. Optimizations of software will smooth operation and lower power will increase battery life. Graphics core would have to be able to output 1080p video smoothly. -Whatever size battery… Read more »

    I’m interested in this type of device as an instant on, content consuming or lightweight browsing/email checking device around the home. Might also come out of the house to keep children amused in doctor’s waiting rooms, etc. With that in mind: – 7″ Screen with at least 800×480 pixels – 600MHz – 1GHz processor, preferably the higher end to better support flash/video – Stock Android 2.2 or better (including Android Market) – 512MB RAM – Capacitive Touch screen – 4000+ mAh – Front Facing Camera (ideally could use for Skype) – Wi-Fi (802.11G/N) – Accelerometer/gyro for detecting orientation – 8Gb… Read more »

    A nice big screen so I don’t have to zoom
    A fast processor for multi tasking
    Some HiFi speakers to make a boom
    For in its glory we will all be basking

    SD card so I can store heaps of stuff
    Wifi and 3G for easy connecting
    Quality components to make it tuff
    And market access so it can do anything

    Lots of RAM to make it fast
    A big battery so it goes on forever
    Price is no matter for this great beast
    Turns any Apple freak into an droid believer


    Mmm, for myself, probably: – 7-9 inch screen, above that seems too big, below seems like a giant smartphone. Resolution, I’m not so fussed as long as I can read what’s on the screen. – Capacitive touch screen, just because they seem less likely to be broken by pushing too much. – A battery that lasts more than 4hours. – ~800MHz, and 256MB RAM or more – basically anything faster than an iPhone 3GS. Software makes this a bit hard to predict. – Wifi/bluetooth, 3G isn’t important as I can’t afford nor manage a 3G data usage contract. – Keyboard/Mouse… Read more »

    Processor probably 600 to 800 with dedicated graphics core, but really comes down to software optimization to utilize the cpu /gpu properly for smooth operation and longer battery life.

    I have been looking at Android tablets since I am developing a custom app to control my smart home (lights, media, AC, cameras). Whilst the current SmartQ could just about work for my needs, the following are an ideal set of specifications: * 7″ Display – Not so huge that it breaks your arms holding it, but large enough to see everything. * Capacitive Screen – Must be responsive to just the finger touch. I don’t want to pull out a stylus to use it reliably. * Fast processor – (Maybe A8 or A9 processor) Something capable of running flash… Read more »


    Key Usage: Home Entertainment, web browsing, video, games Needs: * 10″ screen for easy reading/watching/viewing in bed or on the coffee table * LONG POWER CORD, I’m so SICK of short cords that don’t let me use a device where I want to! * HDMI out for connection to TV * @ $499 NO 3g; Wifi a/b/g/n only * 512 Ram * SDHC card slot, 2gb pre-installed, user upgradable. * Front Camera only, * No GPS, not required at home * Largest battery possible at the price! * User replaceable battery. If someone wants to spend more on a bigger… Read more »


    Hi Guys,

    To be honest, I think the SmartQ already totally trumps the too-often touted Telstra t-touch tablet. However, the next generation of the SmartQ could really stand out in the budget tablet crowd, if given a few improvements. 7” Capacitive Multitouch Screen, to provide the boost in usability that everyone is craving. 5000mAh battery, or perhaps even 6000mAh if Millenius could pull it off, to cram in even more time for watching full-length movies and gaming. This would be especially useful for those long-distance flights and other times when chargers are inaccessible. 800MHz Chip – by the time Millenius are ready… Read more »

    Some great ideas, makes for dry reading though people. Rather than just post some boring specs, thought I’d give a little insight into my thoughts as an almost-there-customer. 1.Capacitive vs. Resistive Just like Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD and VHS vs. Beta before it, the war is over already, capacitive wins by a length. Anyone who has laid a finger on an iDevice cannot go back to struggling with resistive. It doesn’t matter which is better/more accurate/cheaper anymore. Stop making resistive panels as fast as you can to avoid losing money. Going by people’s wishlists so far, screen size could be just… Read more »


    I was going to write my own set of specs but I have now decided to endorse this post instead. The stuff posted here sums up all what I wanted to say. Please make note of pint 3. with Android releases coming out as fast as they have, people really do want to be able to install the latest stock android on their phone/tablet. It seams to me that if the manufacturers spent more time making sure that their devices would be compatible with future andriod releases and less time working on their own version of a crappy interface, they… Read more »


    Thanks man, it was a bit of a rant I admit, but it seemed like someone might actually be listening.

    Lately I’ve been following the Advent Vega in the UK for 250pounds. Seems to have ticked every box on my list except the screen. That’s about $404 AUD at the time of this post.

    Actual release hasn’t happened yet and reviews are frustratingly few and far between but it’s the closest to what I want so far. When iFixit breaks one open we’ll see if you can get PixelQi in there.


    Something like the following would be great!

    – 8 inch
    – 1ghz Snapdragon

    – Battery that would last a minimum of 12 hours on standby
    – G-sensor
    – 512 MB RAM
    – 4 GB in built
    – SD Card Support
    – 3.5mm audio jack
    – Price: $499 and i think this is a realistic price also one i would be willing to pay for a android tablet with those specs.
