Super-specced ICD Gemini shows other tablets how its done

The iPad may well be the talk of the internet at the moment, but a new super-specced tablet has broken cover that really shows what a tablet computer is capable of.

Designed by ICD, the company behind the Vega tablet, the Gemini runs on an Android OS, packs a super-snappy 1GHz Tegra 2 chip to help it push out full HD 1080p video, an 11.2-inch screen, and dual webcams – there's a 2MP front-facing offering, and 5MP with autofocus on the back.

Also on the spec list is 3G connectivity that'll let you make voice calls, an SD card reader, FM radio, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, MicroUSB connectivity and stereo speakers. There's even a user-replaceable 40Wh battery so there's no kerfuffle of having to send it back to get a replacement should the battery fail.

Apparently, the devices multitouch displays will be available in both resistive and capacitive offerings for those of you that insist on wearing gloves when using your tablet, and it will run Flash. Hear that Apple?

There's no further details on when we'll actually see this rather splendid device materialise, or any idea of the price tag for it. All we do know is that we quite want one. Now. Impatient, us?
