Many 7-inch tablets come in different forms and sizes. Some claim to be the fastest, the thinnest or the cheapest of the pack. However, it looks like another 7-incher is claiming the throne for being the world’s lightest. It is called the NEC Medias Tab UL N08-D — and it weighs only 249g.
The NEC Medias Tab UL N08-D has just launched in Japan under NTT DoCoMo. Its weight is around 63% the weight of Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD (395g) and 71% the weight of the Nexus 7 (345g). Even lighter than the Ainol Novo 7 Aurora (325g) that we’ve reviewed before. Its specs, however, isn’t lightweight at all:
1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor
7-inch 1280 x 800 LCD display
8 megapixel Exmore R back-lit camera
2 megapixel front-facing
3100 mAh battery
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
microSD card slot
75 Mbps downlink
Carbon fiber chassis
NTT DoCoMo will start selling this tablet on September 20. No details on pricing and local availability as of the moment but we doubt if it will ever get here.
