FreedomPop might be most known for its free wireless internet service, but the company has today announced that they want to move away from just that, launching their own tablets.
CEO of FreedomPop Stephen Stokols explained the move to tablets with the following: “If we’re going to grow to the point where we’re activating 50,000 or 100,000 phones a month, we needed to get another source for devices.”
The first of the tablets is the FreedomPop Liberty, and the other is the FreedomPop Frenzy with LTE.
Both tablets will be available in the US launching either late this year or early next year. The Liberty will be priced at $89 and the Frenzy will be $99 at launch.
Liberty and Frenzy will have a 7 inch touchscreen with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, along with a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor and 512MB RAM.
The tablets also have 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 4 megapixel rear-facing camera, 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 2,400mAh battery, alongside Google’s 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.
Frenzy will also include support for LTE.
