1&1 Webhost Creates SmartPad Android Tablet

The large German Webhost 1&1 has created a new tablet called the SmartPad. It runs Google Android and has a 7 inch touchscreen.

The new SmartPad tablet device has been designed for new 1&1 customers who subscribe to the DSL service for their home broadband connection. As well as offering the Android tablet to new customers, existing customers will also be allowed to purchase the tablet. Pricing details have not been revealed just yet although it is expected it will arrive this month.

Technical specs on the device show it has wireless built in (802.11b/g/n) as well as the ability to use a USB 3G modem.

The processor inside is believe to be a 500MHz ARM11 processor. 256MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM are included. The Google [GOOG] operating system running is Android 1.6 which we hear will be updated to Android 2.2 later this year. Unfortunately you cannot access the Android Market on this device and instead, you’ll use some custom version of the software.

For storage it is believed a 2GB microSD will be supplied with the tablet.

When we get official word we’ll post an update.
