Dual-Core Tablet PC from Gemini Devices
Following the launch of its first entry into the Tablet PC market, UK based, mobile consumer electronics brand, Gemini Devices is back with a new Dual Core addition to the JoyTAB Tablet PC series.
The Gem9212, which features a 9.7" IPS display, Android 4, Quad Core graphics and up to 7 hours battery life, sounds like a vast improvement over the original tablets specs.
Thanks to Cortex A9 Dual Core processing power, Quad Core video graphics and 1GB DDR3 memory the Gem9212 achieved a Quadrant score* of 4175, and a SunSpider** benchmark of only 1590.1 - making it one of the fastest tablets currently on the market. (Please also see further benchmark scores below.)
The Gem9212's centrepiece is the 9.7" 1024 x 768 Capacitive Multi-Touch Screen which is the same-res as the standard iPad/iPad 2. It also features an IPS panel to deliver super wide viewing angles, sharper images and a vibrant colour palette.
The Gem9212 features Google's Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS providing access to over 600,000 downloadable applications from multiple Android app markets, as well as simple navigation, advanced multi tasking support and a speedier web browser.
To complete the package the Gem9212 boasts: both a front and rear mounted 2MP camera (rear camera includes Flash); plenty of storage options for media content, with 16GB built-in storage supplied as standard, and a Micro-SD slot to add a further 32GB any time; built-in Bluetooth technology to connect wirelessly with an arsenal of Bluetooth enabled external devices; and Micro USB and Mini HDMI for simple, seamless connectivity to a TV or PC.
