It has come as a bit of a surprise to many, that Russian based company Rover Computers has out of the blue released 5 new tablet computers. Maybe the tablet revolution really is getting into full swing. These latest devices come with screen sizes ranging from 5 to 7 inches and four out of the five are running with Android OS, the fifth with Windows CE.

The four Android tablet computers are the TegA W70, the RoverPad G50, the RoverPad G72 and the RoverPad 3WG70. The Windows CE Tablet is the RoverPad Air G70.The four Android tablet computers are the TegA W70, the RoverPad G50, the RoverPad G72 and the RoverPad 3WG70. The Windows CE Tablet is the RoverPad Air G70.The Windows CE RoverPad Air G70 has a seven-inch WVGA resistive touchscreen, 256MB of RAM, 4 GB of built in flash storage and has a 667MHz Samsung ARM11 processor. You also get Wi-Fi and optional 3G. Oh yes, can’t forget the 3 megapixel camera, MicroSD expansion slot and TV output too.

The best of the Android bunch is the RoverPad TegA W70 which has a seven inch screen, runs on Android 2.1, carries a Nvidia Tegra Chipset, comes with 512 MB RAM, a 4GB Flash Drive and has Wi-Fi and 3G. You also get a HDMI output and a webcam.

The RoverPad G50 has a smaller five-inch screen, a Marvell PXA303 chip and runs on Android 1.5. You also get a microSD slot and a USB socket.

The RoverPad Go G72 has a seven-inch screen device that uses Android 1.6 and also has Bluetooth, Ethernet and optional GPS. It’s basically a larger 7 inch version of the G50.

The cheapest option of them all is the RoverPad 3WG70, which uses Android 1.5 and a RockChip 2808. It comes with 128MB of RAM and 2GB of flash storage. Prices for the cheapest of these devices are expected to start at around the 10,000 rubles mark which equates to roughly $321. However, the biggest issue surrounding these new tablet devices is going to be getting hold of one. That’s another matter altogether.

Tech site Engadget have just put an update on their site that all may not be well with Moscow based Rover Computers. “We’ve received credible information that Rover may not actually survive as a company long enough to release these. Word has it that the general manager just bolted, and the vast majority of the marketing team was let go. In their words, the company is “practically bankrupt now,” and it’s unlikely the firm will find the funds to brand these otherwise vanilla ODM designs as its own. That’s a pity! However, there’s always hope.
