BeBook Live Coming This Summer to Take On Nook Color

BeBook will be launching its Android tablet called the BeBook Live this summer that will be targeted more towards e-readers rather than tablet users. As such, the BeBook Live hardware platform, which will run the Android 2.2 operating system, will more closely compete with the Barnes & Nook, which also runs Android 2.2 through the latest software update and has support for Adobe Flash and third-party apps, than tablets like the Xoom and other Android 3.0 devices. The Android 2.2-wielding BeBook Live will sport a 1 GHz Samsung processor, a 7-inch 800 X 600 touchscreen, front-facing camera, HDMI port, and micro SDHC card support all for about $280.


While the screen is lower in resolution than the gorgeous Nook Color’s display, the inclusion of a front-facing camera and HDMI port will help extend the BeBook Live to tablet users who demand more from their tablets beyond just e-reading.
