ICD Ultra2010 is the year of the tablet and while the spotlight has been on Apple’s iPad there is a bevy of new tablets hitting the market vying for a sweet piece of the tablet pie. Take the ICD Ultra for instance. Built on Adobe’s air technology running on top of Google Android this 7” touch screen tablet is mighty in its versatility and processing power.

Manufactured by ICD this compact powerhouse is loaded with features not found on the iPad.

A 1GHz Tegra T20 CPU pushes the device with 512 MB of RAM & 512 MB of ROM. It also has 4 GB of hardwired storage, a 4G Motorola modem, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 a 1.3 megapixel camera, stereo microphones HDMI out, USB 2.0 and a Micro SD slot. There is an accelerometer and ambient light sensor and a 3.5 mm headphone jack!

The initial prototype runs Android 2.0 and rips through 1080P video like a knife through butter. It will run any android apps and has FLASH 10 support. It’s got a generous 1024x600 screen resolution and is under development for Verizon. Initial reviews are optimistic and ICD projects the device will sell in the $249.00 range which is a dramatic savings over an iPad.
