While all the analysts and bloggers speculate over the iTablet and the Courier, ICD has a tablet PC heading for CES 2010 that actually exists. And it runs Android 2.0, which adds about 15 extra points to its Geek Cred. While CNet says that full details won't emerge until CES 2010, the company has already put out a thorough PDF about the product.

The tablet, named Vega, will come in 7", 11", and 15.6" versions. The resistive touchscreen will be capable of displaying 262,000 colors, and the whole tablet will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra processor. It'll have 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of NAND Flash memory. Video conferencing will be possible with this tablet, thanks to its front-facing 1.3 MP camera. While the internal memory on this thing is going to suck, you will be able to use a 32 GB micro SD card to store your media.

ICD's tablet will be Bluetooth 2.1 enabled and pack 802.11 b/g WiFi, in addition to 3G and 3G cellular options. It'll also pack an accelerometer, magnetic docking, an ambient light sensor, and dual digital microphones.

To me, this gadget sounds just as hot as the rumored iTablet. Sure, it lacks the App Store, but Android's App Market is still fairly good. The Vega will be just as good at multimedia as the rumored iTablet, and it'll probably cost less to boot. Plus, it has the added benefit of being, y'know, real. Better start saving your money now; this thing is likely to hit early next year, after CES 2010.
