Camera maker and camera film developer Polaroid has confirmed that it plans to launch a 10-inch Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) tablet with a glasses-free 3D display in Europe, according to British website Expert Reviews.

The WiFi-enabled tablet will have a resolution of 1024 x 768 (4:3 aspect ratio), boast a 1.5GHz ARM-based processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a memory card reader supporting up to 32GB of additional space. There’ll also be a HDMI output for the ability to play 1080p HD video on an external display.

Polaroid says that European retailers are now taking pre-orders for the tablet at €249, although an official European release date has not yet been announced. US availability and pricing has also not been publicized, while an official name on the device is still to be determined.

Meanwhile, in related news, Liliputing has unearthed an FCC filing which suggests that Polaroid is also planning to launch a 7-inch tablet, dubbed the PMID701i, also with Ice Cream Sandwich on-board.

The source says that the tablet will have a display resolution of 800 x 480, a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, 4GB of storage space and 512MB of RAM. The report indicates that the slate won’t have access to the Google Play Store, meaning users will instead have to take advantage of Amazon’s AppStore.
