Icarus Bluefire G2 Android tablet looks awfully familiar

June 20th, 2011 by · No Comments · hardware news

Ereaders.nl have turned up a new Android tablet today from the Dutch gadget company Icarus.

The Bluefire G2 is running Android v2.3 on a 1.2MHz CPU with a 7″ (800 x 480) capacitive touchscreen, 4GB Flash, microSD card slot, Wifi, HDMI out, and a 2MP camera. It also has Android Market, and Icarus have promised a later update to Honeycomb.

It’s shipping now with a retail of 199€.

If you ask me, I think it’s a close cousin of one of the Kyros Android tablets from Coby. Also, at least one of the other tablets looks an awful lot like the Kyros I covered last fall. The specs are better, but the general design is virtually identical.
