If we say that the catalog of Ice Cream Sandwich Android tablets is limited as would be lying scoundrels. The quantity and quality are overwhelming right now, with great names such popular devices like Samsung, Acer and ASUS. But there is room for new entrants in the high range, and above all, room for improvement, however small. This is the argument of NEC LifeTouch L , the last tablet of the company Nippon wants to compete in design and format with the largest, with a thin profile and weight really quite content.

The new "slate" of 10-inch NEC aims to goals as the new Toshiba Excite , featuring a minimalist design in a highly stylized, lightweight chassis, with the thickness of 7.99 mm and weight only 540 grams, and the latest developments in the tablets industry, led by the latest version of Google Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) and a Texas Instruments OMAP4460 SoC capable with dual-core processor at 1.5GHz. NEC will offer this device in two versions, one for professional public and one for home users, which seems like a very interesting idea to appeal to the attention of all consumers.

The model specifically designed for professional use includes 16GB of internal storage and advanced security features pre-installed to monitor the device in case of loss or prevent theft and facilitate secure access to corporate networks, and will begin shipping in late of June. Meanwhile, the version for home users will have two variants, one with 16GB and another with 32GB of internal storage, with a release date for July 5 and includes an implementation of "parental control" to keep the little ones home safe from harmful online content. All tablets share the same 10.1-inch IPS panel with 1280x800 pixel resolution and a range of approximately 13 hours of web nagegación and about 10 hours of video playback, which places it in the high end in terms of duration of battery. All versions have WLAN connectivity with support for the 5GHz band - greater coverage and speed, less congestion -

According to Engadget, the new NEC LifeTouch L come with prices quite high, namely 45,000 yen, or about 570 dollars or 450 Euros, a price perhaps justified by the impressive mammoth format and autonomy.
