The New Skypad Family

The new Skypad family is more advanced, stronger, faster, and even bigger. The Skypad Protos is a 9.7 inch Super IPS 1024×768 widescreen beauty device. This powerhouse is packed with a 1.2 GHZ Arm Cortez and has a wopping 10 hours plus battery life. Also a full 1 GB of ram and a MALI GPU for excellent gaming performance. This is my current favorite of the Skypad family and hope to see her excell as a Ipad competitor. Here is the more detailed information. 
Videos and photos are rich with color and vibrancy on the all-new 9.7” Skypad Protos tablet featuring a high-def IPS display that brings images to life! The high capacity 6,000mAh battery allows you to stay connected playing games and browsing the web for 25% longer than other tablets.
The High Def IPS Display Protos features an incredible 1024 x 768 resolution with clarity and vibrancy typically found on more expensive tablets. The vivid 9.7″ display offers you the comfort of a big screen so you can lose yourself in your favorite movies, books, and games for hours on end.
Bluetooth and Dual Hi-Res Cameras
Connect compatible Bluetooth devices such as speakers, headphones and keyboard that will function up to 30 feet away from the tablet. With two (2) high resolution cameras, capture life’s cherished moments or share some quality face time with family and friends.

The next in line successor is the Skypad Gemini due to be out in May. It is supposedly to be a 7 inch gaming tablet which I view as a more updated version of  the Skypad Alpha 2 with a new 2.0 mp front camera in a more desirable position, Bluetooth 2.0, 1GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, and the micro hdmi cable which makes this a much better buy than the Alpha. This is an excellent gift for kids if you IT professional parents know how to install the GAPPS software. This tablet will be an excellent choice for anyone and you can read more about it below. I hope to be reviewing this tablet when it comes out.  
The Next Generation of Tablet is Here…with Bluetooth Compatibility and Hi-res Webcam
     The all new SKYPAD Gemini races into action fueled by the powerful 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor + Mali-400 GPU. Gemini handles apps, browsing, streaming, and gaming like no other Tablet. The capacitive touchscreen can recognize up to 5-points of touch, perfect for effortless navigation of the web, any game, or application.
Bluetooth and Hi-res Webcam
We’ve integrated Bluetooth 2.0 for pairing your Tablet with favorite wireless accessories. In addition, there’s a hi-res 2.0MP front-facing webcam and internal mic for Internet calling and video chatting with family and friends. All of this adds up to our most feature packed tablet yet.

  The next and final newcomer is the vastly unknown Skypad Pocket is to replace the old Primer Pocket and be the 5 inch pocket friendly version of the excellent Skypad family. There is no information on this product and only one picture on their website. I believe this will be a great family to rival the Ipad family. 


Prices: $169 Gemini and $264 for the Skypad Protos as advertised on Amazon
Update: prices are slashed on the Skytex website: $139 for the Alpha 2  $159 for the Gemini and $249 for the Protos with 5GB of free cloud storage on the Protos only.
