Just last week, we were reporting that eLocity would be bringing out 7 new Android tablets – the A10.x series. (Replace .x with #1-#7.) eLocity caught my attention with a decent-sized CES booth on the show floor and I rushed over immediately to check them out. We learned that most of the tablets would be running Android 3.0 Honeycomb – which was the biggest drawing factor – but the units on display were all on Froyo with a slightly-modified launcher. None of the other software included has been customized as of today.

The official announcement told us to expect 7 10-inch tablets, but there were only 3-4 of the 7 on display (alongside the current A7 model.) They’re all powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 processors, have HDMI, have front-facing cameras, and 512MB of RAM. The differences are going to be in screen size, operating system version, and storage space. (Configurations range from 16GB-250GB, apparently.

It’s clear that Froyo wasn’t taking full advantage of the Tegra 2 processor as things were a bit sluggish in my brief testing, but these tablets definitely deserve a re-look once they’re launched sometime this month or early next with Honeycomb or Gingerbread on board. Take a look at my quick demo of the thing on video above.
