These days we’ve got the CEATEC 2012 show in Japan going on, with quite a few devices on showcase. They include the NEC Medias Tab UL, probably the lightest 7 inch tablet in the world, at 250 grams. We’ve written about this device before and now it’s back with a hands on video from Engadget, shown below.
The 7 inch NEC tablet measures 7.9 mm in thickness and packs a 3,100 mAh battery inside, as well as a Snapdragon MSM8960 1.5 GHz dual core processor. When compared to the Nexus 7, the Google tablet would look very bulky compared to this svelte newcomer. Android runs here with a custom DoCoMo skin on top of it and other features of the device include a TV aerial on the side, a crisp WXGA screen, that seems to be a TFT and speeds of up to 75 Mbps in download.
In upload customers will reach 25 Mbps via DoCoMo. The device supports a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and viewing angles were reasonably wide. The tablet is on sale right now in Japan and there’s no telling if it will ever leave the country, although that would be pretty sweet.
