Fujitsu had an Android quad core prototype smartphone at CES and they’re also preparing some nifty tablets for the future, but in the meantime they announced something that’s more of a midrange slate. I’m talking about the Fujitsu Stylistic M350/CA2 tablet, a 7 inch Android device that’s shown in the image below.

The M350/CA2 features a 7 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1GHz Freescale i.Mx processor, 512MB of RAM and it runs Gingerbread and not Honeycomb, as some of you might have expected. The device reminds me of the original Galaxy Tab in the design department and I have to say I’m intrigued by those capacitive buttons from the bottom that have a certain Ice Cream Sandwich ring to them. Well, it’s all fine and nice till you find out the price for this baby:  $455. Overpriced much?!

I really can’t understand this pricing, so it’s either they wrote the price wrong or the specs wrong. If this is truly the real price tag, then Fujitsu has a problem with making correct estimations when it comes to price versus hardware. What do you think?
