We're inching ever closer to the promised bombardment of iPad alternatives, otherwise simply known as tablets. Amazon, for example, is now taking preorders for eLocity's A7 tablet built on Google's Android 2.2 (Froyo) platform.
For 370 bones, the A7 brings a 7-inch touchscreen to the table, Nvidia's Tegra 2 architecture, 4GB of Flash memory (storage), 512MB of DDR2 memory, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1.3MP webcam, micro SD card slot, USB 2.0 port, 3-axis accelerometer, and the ability to pipe 1080p content through its HDMI port.
It's a bit smaller than the iPad at just 7-inches, but one-ups Apple's magical device in a few areas. For more info, see our recent hands-on preview here .
