Polaroid 3D Android tablet plans confirmed

Polaroid, a company better known for instant-print camera technologies, has confirmed plans to launch a 10in Android-powered tablet with a glasses-free 3D display in Europe.

The device, which runs a customised version of Google's Android 4.0 'Ice Cream Sandwich' mobile operating system, has a 10in display with a resolution of 1024x768. While the 4:3 aspect ratio is unusual in the world of Android tablets, it's the glasses-free 3D, which uses a similar system to that of Nintendo's 3DS hand-held console, that is the unique feature.

The tablet is powered by a 1.5GHz ARM-based processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a memory card reader supporting up to 32GB of additional space. An HDMI output provides the ability to play 1080p HD video on an external display, while 802.11b/g Wi-Fi offers connectivity to the internet. Unlike some other tablets, there's no indication of a planned 3G mobile broadband equipped version in the works.

Polaroid enters a crowded market: following the staggering success of Apple's iPad tablet and the popularity of premium devices from the likes of Samsung and Asus, the company is hoping its 3D display will be enough to make its offering stand out from the crowd.

UK pricing and availability for the device has yet to be confirmed, with European retailers taking pre-orders for the tablet at €249 (around £205).
