The SmaKit S7 is quite large for an Android 3G connectivity based cell phone. This might be a kind of solution for the consumers with the large hands. The tablet is quite finely designed and as it is an Android tablet, it supports all the Android software applications to a maximum of 720 pixel high definition. The SmaKit S7 has a wide screen type of touch screen display which is 7 inches in size. The touch screen is resistive in nature and it has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The screen has LED backlights too. This wide screen display is ideal for the Android tablet as it displays all the applications finely in a row. The SmaKit S7 has a specially designed docking station that allows the Android tablet to get a HDMI interface that allows the 720 pixel high definition videos to be watched on the large screens or monitors. There is a couple of hi-speed USB 2.0 interfaces on the tablet. It also has an in built micro SD card slot supporting SD and SDHC cards of up to 32 GB.
The SmaKit S7 has a resistive touch screen that is not pleasant and it is unresponsive too. A capacitive display could have been used instead. The user interface is not optimized for a 7 inch display. In case the user needs to swipe to answer a call, the user must swipe through the entire screen as it is resistive. The voice quality is good overall. The battery life is rated to be 4 hours under normal usage and under the idle condition it is up to 12 hours. The tablet has a strong and good build quality. The speakers are good in the landscape mode. The inclusion of the stylus is also due to the resistive nature of the screen. The video calling feature is eagerly expected from the 2 mega pixel camera that is included in the tablet. The device is also expected to support the 720 pixel video playback. Lot more details about the SmsKit S7 have to be confirmed officially but it will take some time. Let us wait for the release of the tablet for the other specifications and performance related issues.
