Texas Instruments Blaze Tablet Specs


Recently Texas Instruments released the details of their Blaze tablet. While the device certainly boasts very impressive specs, don’t get too excited; the tablet is not a fancy Android based one, but is in fact targeted at developers who are working or intend to work on the Blaze Development platform.

This Blaze Tablet has some pretty impressive specs and here they are for your reference: Blaze tablet

  • 1 GHz OMAP4430 Application And Multimedia Processor

As you can see from the specs, the device would definitely be ranked amongst the highest-end tablets out there but there is a major catch: as we mentioned earlier, this tablet is not meant for the casual users. It has been developed as a tablet exclusively for programmers and developers, who want to build on the Texas Instruments Blaze platform. It comes with all the development tools necessary for the purpose, and is mainly intended to provide developers with state-of-the-art equipment to build their apps on, which will likely be then used by the mass market when tablets running consumer-oriented versions of the platform are released to the public in the future.

We don’t know the release date yet but we can predict it to be somewhere in Q4 this year. The price is expected to be quite high as being a developer-oriented device, fewer units would be made, increasing the per-unit cost, so expect it to be in the $1500 range for now.

  • What you see here is Texas Instruments tablet PC, also known as the Blaze. This is not meant to be confused with a phone from Motorola. It has a 10.4 inch screen (1024 x 768 resolution), built in cellular modem, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and even an FM radio.
