Local firm Karuma develops 7-inch Android tablet

A local firm called Karuma has thrown its hat into the tablet ring with a 7-inch device called PlayBase that they are selling for US$270.

The tablet has a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of DDR 3 RAM and 8 GB of onboard storage. The PlayBase runs a modified version of Gingerbread but with that amount of RAM, it looks like they are planning to run  Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich on it in future. The device will go on sale before Christmas.

We wish them luck. So far, it has been more of an iPad market than a tablet market though Amazon's Kindle also seems to be gaining traction. It looks like manufacturers are able to shift tablets because of a content ecosystem rather than specs but maybe PlayBase will be an exception.
