While Puzzlephone and ImasD are working hard and incessantly to bring their first modular devices to life, a new tablet kid popped up on the block, or let’s say it’s been frolicking around for a while now.
What you see is a new modular tablet XPX Life 7. It comes with a 7-inch, 1024×600 px display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G capability, meaning that you can use it as a mobile phone with a carrier of your choice.
The brain power sports a powerful Quad Core Cortex A7 processor with 1.5GHz processing speed. Additionally, you get a removable and easily-upgradable battery, and dual (front and back) camera. Basically, you get everything you want from a tablet and even more… HDMI and mini USB ports.
You can change modules for ones with better performance, should you wish to squeeze more juice of a battery or if 2MPX do not fulfill your photographic ambitions, you can acquire up to 13MPX. A 3G phone modem allows you to get 4G or better as newer telecommunication technologies emerge on the horizon.
You might think this little wonder would run you a fortune, given the hype and mystery surrounding long-awaited modular devices. Ladies and gentlemen, lo and behold, the price of this beauty is only $279. It also comes with a 2-year warranty from a manufacturer.
The downside is that it is not widely available on the European or US market. It found its niche in Latin America where it is offered on shopping TV channels and local mobile stores. But the fact is undeniable – XPX Life 7 is the first modular tablet available to the public.
