ICD Ultra Android Tablet Gets Official ICD Ultra to Feature NVIDIA Tegra 2 Chipset and LTE Connectivity; Verizon to Launch It?
Today we have one more tablet or slate for you. This time it s made by
ICD in collaboration with NVIDIA, Motorola and Verizon.It looks like ICD
has been working on a 7-inch Android tablet for Verizon which is going
to offer some very hot specs like NVIDIA s Tegra 2 chipset and a
Motorola 4G modem capable of dealing with fast LTE connectivity. Sure
Verizon is a long way from launching an LTE device but the carrier wants
to start offering the new communication standard by the end of the year
in 25 to 30 U.S. markets.
Naturally the ICD Ultra, the tablet in the image above, should be
available in stores later this year, as long as Verizon does its job and
starts offering LTE connectivity as initially stated.
Just earlier today we showed you the new Tegra 2 chipset from NVIDIA and
one thing is very clear, the new chipset will be able to do some
extraordinary things. Tegra 2-powered tablets should be capable of
delivering lots of features while you re on the go. Couple all those
Tegra 2 features with Android OS, add an LTE modem and you ll get a very
fast, very capable device ready to help you communicate with others,
browse the web and enjoy full HD content.
Other features include Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity which
means you ll be able to connect your ICD Ultra to other devices and
Wi-Fi hotspots. The battery should last for up to 4 hours on a single
charge which might not be enough for most people.
That s what the ICD Ultra should do for you but that s all theory for
now. We ll be waiting for Verizon to finish LTE deployment in the United
States before we ll see this product in stores. No pricing details or
actual availability dates have been announced at this time as Verizon
will launch the device only later this year.
