The consumer electronics and accessory company is the latest to jump into the increasingly crowded category.
Hipstreet, which is based in Ontario, California, announced that it will be releasing a new 7-inch Android 2.3 tablet in coming months.
The tablet, named Vektor, will have Wi-Fi support, and 4GB of storage, expandable to 32GB. Further specification and pricing are not yet available, but TabTimes expects it to fall in the value end of the scale.
Hipstreet hopes to leverage its retail presence to sell the Vektor; Hipstreet has over 6,000 retail outlets across the world, including a number of stores in India.
This new tablet announcement represents a growing trend of consumer electronics, telecommunications, and supply-chain companies attempting to capitalize on the increasing numbers of tablet adopters around the world. Yesterday, IDC reported that the number of tablets sold would reach 106 million units in 2012.
